Since my post on the error when installing a joomla module was so (relatively) popular, I think an update is in order. I’ve found the proper changes to make, which should work for anyone.
2. Find the line that looks like this: var $log_path = /some/path/logs
Change this line to: var $log_path = ‘./logs’
3. There’s another line in configuration.php that needs your attention as well.
Find the following line: var $tmp_path = /some/path/tmp. It should be right below the line you just edited.
Change this line to: var $tmp_path = ‘./tmp’
