Finding and installing extensions
From Joomla! Documentation
I see that in Joomla 1.5 the function where you could see if the nessesary directories where writable, is removed. I always get into trouble when trying to install components/modules/plugins because of permission problems. In addition the errors from Joomla seem pretty random depending on where there is a permission problem. The current information in this guide is quite poor (see Installing_an_extension#Installation ) Could someone here please say which directories commonly need to be writable for a successful installation? this would certainly be very helpful...

This article and Help25: Extensions Extension Manager Install appear to cover the same topic. Should their content be merged together, and then we could remove one of them. I think it makes more sense to only have one article covering a topic. Thoughts?
