Not a Bug Not-so-clear error message when trying to install add-ons with "wrong" chowner

    On one of my XenForos, the FTP user is different from www-data, both don't share any privileges.

    While I surely can see why XenForo has problems writing into a folder not owned by the web server, the error message that appears when XenForo notices it can't install an add-on by XML should be improved:

    Technically, it could be "parsed", right?

    This particular backtrace doesn't actually have anything to do with XenForo - the file is being read by an add-on.
