Joomla extension upload error/warning

Just tried to upload an extension into my Plesk/Joomla1.5.7 site and I get this:-

I think this has happened since pointing the DNS to the plesk version of the site. I suspect that there is a path or permissions problem, a perennial favourite of mine  Wink Any ideas?

Re: Joomla extension upload error/warning

Relax all is now okay.
Just realised having gone through the quote to change my domain to "mydomain" that the ftp paths were still pointing to the directory that the site was being built in but when the DNS was switched and the directory was renamed I hadn't realised that this created an 'infinite loop' in the global configuration.
FYI
If you find this happening to you login to your admin (Joomla) click Site>global configuration>Server and change path to temp-folder to
Quote
/var/www/vhosts/mydomain/httpdocs/tmp

and in FTP Settings 'FTP Host' to
Quote
ftp.mydomain

Curiously enough, it now works Grin
Apologies if I'm stating the blindingly obvious to some of you but there may be someone out there who is not so clever as you, and my intellectual equal  Wink
