Exception - Class 'ZipArchive' not found - error/moodle/generalexceptionmessage
 

Hello, 

 I installed  the version of Moodle 3.4 in my cpanel of godaddy 

I have a general problem that arises when I try to install a theme plugin and when I try to install a language pack. Basically I think it's a general error.

mmmm If I am reading you right, you are adding the zip file into the folder, e.g. schoolbooktheme.zip is downloaded, copied to the Themes folder and you log in to update at which point you are getting an error. Is that what I am reading? I have always unzipped any zip files before doing anything with them. Extract them first then inserted the whole result where it needs to go. A theme needs to go into the root/themes folder. A plugin goes into the appropriate slot for it, then go to Notifications and follow the bouncing ball from there. Always works for me.
