You could try installing the module manually.

There are four steps:

1. download the extension as normal

2. extract its contents into a folder on your local computer

3. upload those files into the temporary directory in your Joomla installation

4. use the Install from Directory option

Before starting it is a good idea to ensure your Joomla tmp folder is empty. It should be, but if you previously had an unsuccessful extension install attempt, there will probably be some files left over, which could upset this process.

Step 1 is to download your desired extension as normal.

Step 2 is to extract the contents of the extension on your local computer. You don’t normally do this with extensions, but this is the process for this method. So open the downloaded file which is usually a zip and extract the contents into a new temporary folder on your computer. This could take some time, depending on the size of the extension.

Step 3 is to upload these files into the tmp folder. So use an FTP client and return to the /tmp folder. Upload the files that you extracted in step 2.

Step 4 is to return to Administrator and Extension Manager. In the Install from Directory section, click the Install button.
