Experiencing a PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT error when updating plugin/themes on WordPress running PHP 7
I setup WordPress on Ubuntu 16.04 using the one-click install that is provided by DigitalOcean. Everything seemed fine, until I tried to update a theme and received the following error:
The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Invalid archive structure
I have run this update many times on other servers with no issue, so I think it must be some config issue that I did with the new server. It is running PHP 7. I found another question that referenced adding the php7.0-zip package. I did this and still no dice.
Here is some additional information from my server:
zip Zip => enabled Zip version => 1.13.3 Libzip version => 1.0.1 zlib ZLib Support => enabled Stream Wrapper => compress.zlib:// Stream Filter => zlib.inflate, zlib.deflate Compiled Version => 1.2.8 Linked Version => 1.2.8 Directive => Local Value => Master Value zlib.output_compression => On => On zlib.output_compression_level => -1 => -1 zlib.output_handler => no value => no value
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
