When I download the Craft CMS and try to unpack it. I get the error: "Unexpected end of archive". It seems the download pakage is not complete. When I browse in the .zip file I only see a craft folder (and no public).

Anyone can give me a good download link?

Thanks in advanced

  • I think this makes the case for us to get the downloads on a distributed CDN. – Brad Bell Sep 23 '14 at 14:40
  • If you want to email support@buildwithcraft.com, we can try to send you the latest over email and/or a Dropbox link and see if that works. – Brad Bell Sep 23 '14 at 14:41
  • Thanks for the help! I've mailed support. Let's see if that works. – Lennard Breevaart Sep 23 '14 at 15:03

It is probably to do with your connection. I have the same problem here, and I had to use something that can resume downloads to get the complete zip.

For example Chrono Download Manager addon for Chrome might work for that.

  • Thanks for the reply. When I try to download through Chrono it will download for ~5 seconds till 2% and then jumps to 100%. So 98% of the download it skips. I tried several download managers and several browsers. When I download something else it just goes just fine.. :/ – Lennard Breevaart Sep 23 '14 at 12:39
