I have created a module on my local installation which appears correctly in the Modules list. I can install and uninstall it without a problem.

However, when I upload it via FTP to the remote web server, it does not appear in the list of Modules. I uploaded it into the correct location (/system/expressionengine/third_party/) and the folder structure is correct.

Has anyone else come across this problem?

  • It turns out I did something stupid - the site was moved to a new server and I was uploading the files to the previous server facepalm – colincameron Feb 27 '13 at 10:14

As unlikely as it sounds, if you're sure the the location is correct I'd try checking permissions. I've run across a few times where either the directories or the add-on files themselves were not set to be readable at all and therefore EE didn't recognize they were there.

As Mike mentions above check permissions as that can be the main problem here. The only other thing I can think of would be some erroneous white space at the end of a closing ?> PHP tag in one (or possibly more) of the modules files. That could also cause the problem.
