Description of my issue:
Hi

I have just tried to restore my website from my local development environment where it is working fine to my online hosting and am getting the following error on the last step of the restore/kickstart process...

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function downloadAndReturn() on null in /homepages/21/d551717793/htdocs/fluxx2017a/installation/framework/download/download.php:166 Stack trace: #0 /homepages/21/d551717793/htdocs/fluxx2017a/installation/platform/models/joomlasetup.php(707): ADownloadDownload->getFromURL('https://raw.git...') #1 /homepages/21/d551717793/htdocs/fluxx2017a/installation/platform/models/joomlasetup.php(613): AngieModelJoomlaSetup->replaceHtaccess() #2 /homepages/21/d551717793/htdocs/fluxx2017a/installation/platform/models/joomlasetup.php(225): AngieModelJoomlaSetup->applyServerconfigchanges() #3 /homepages/21/d551717793/htdocs/fluxx2017a/installation/angie/controllers/base/setup.php(22): AngieModelJoomlaSetup->applySettings() #4 /homepages/21/d551717793/htdocs/fluxx2017a/installation/framework/controller/controller.php(511): AngieControllerBaseSetup->apply() #5 /homepages/21/d551717793/htdocs/fluxx2017a/installation/framework/dispatcher/dispatcher.php(267): AController->execute('apply') #6 /homepa in /homepages/21/d551717793/htdocs/fluxx2017a/installation/framework/download/download.php on line 166

I have recently added RS Firewall and Cookie notice extensions to my site so wondering if either of these may be causing the issue.

Please advise on anything I might try to resolve this issue?

Many Thanks
Peter Hay

Hello Peter,

we are aware of this issue and we are going to release a new version very shortly.
In the meantime, you can avoid this issue by removing the check from the Replace main .htaccess file with default field in the Setup page.

We're very sorry for this inconvenience, thank you for your understanding.

Hi Davide

Many Thanks for the prompt reply. I removed the check from the Replace main .htaccess file with default field in the Setup page and the site restored :-)

Shall keep an eye out for next release with fix for the issue.
