I upgraded to the latest Pro version and add to restore my website. I used the following procedure:

- copy the zip file + kickstart.php to the root
- run kickstart.php

I am getting the follwing error, allways:

"The archive file is corrupt, truncated or archive parts are missing"

Can you help me?


"Latest" is not a version. The 3.0 stable was released last night, my guess is that you posted this before that was available. That is important because there are some changes to kickstart in the 3.0 stable version. Please upgrade your kickstart to 3.0 stable and try your restore again. :)
