Does Your Sitecore 8 Hang While Package Upload?

This is a quick tip for all those who are using Sitecore.NET 8.0 rev. 150223 (8.0 Update 2) and facing hang issue while uploading Sitecore package.

There are two options to get rid of this issue.

Move to next upgrade as it is known issue and resolved in Sitecore 8.0 Update 3, you can find it at official release notes.

 But naturally this is not an easy solution.

This issue occurs when there is NO packages folder found under /Data folder at your Sitecore instance. So create packages folder manually under /Data folder in order to fix this issue.

Thanks to my colleague Mahek who introduced me this issue.

Enjoy your Sitecore Packaging now!
