How to create a Joomla module and be able to install it?

Joomla Asked by Marckson on September 5, 2021

I’ve read all the official Joomla documentation and videos available to learn how to make a basic module, however, when I finish making a module, I can’t manage to install it in my Joomla project.

I am receiving the following error

It was not possible find the installation package.

Can anybody help me?

The server I use is Apache and the module files are these
As simple as possible.

Thanks to everyone who helped me. I managed to solve the problem. After reading the comments, I realized the mistake I was making. The file has to be specifically .zip, but I thought that any compressed file he would be able to interpret, but not. This may be due to my server, but I'm not sure. Sorry for my stupidity. kjsksjksjk

Thank you all for your help again: Irata and FFrewin.

I was able to get the same message about not being able to find the install file so I compressed your module as a .zip and it installed fine.

It is likely that your hosting environment is not able to handle the .RAR format.
