which (old) joomla version am I running?

Hi, can you please advise how I can find out the exact joomla version I'm running?

The modified file dates are dated October 2009.

I can't find a version.php file like in wordpress...

Is there anywhere in the database that I can find this info? some of my joomla files got corrupted and I need to re-upload them.

Thanks!

i apologize because I didnt mention that I can not  access the admin section, because all of my "index.*" files got defaced, so I have to re-upload them. For now, I dont have access to the admin panel, just most of the old files and the db is still intact.

Thank you for the quick reply, I could find this info inside /libraries/joomla/version.php:


/** @var string Product */
      var $PRODUCT       = 'Joomla!';
      /** @var int Main Release Level */
      var $RELEASE       = '1.5';
      /** @var string Development Status */
      var $DEV_STATUS = 'Stable';
      /** @var int Sub Release Level */
      var $DEV_LEVEL       = '12';
      /** @var int build Number */
      var $BUILD      = '';
      /** @var string Codename */
      var $CODENAME       = 'Wojmamni Ama Woi';
      /** @var string Date */
      var $RELDATE       = '01-July-2009';
      /** @var string Time */
      var $RELTIME       = '02:00';
      /** @var string Timezone */
      var $RELTZ       = 'GMT';

Can you please let me know which is the version I need to download in order to get the exact same release?

Thank you

I assume this is the file I need in order to repair my installation?

Also is there any 'integrity check" or any way to check that all of the joomla files are there? something like a system scan?

Thank you

Looks like my plan didn't work out.

As soon as I try to load homepage, I'm getting redirected to www.site.com/installation/install.php. Any ideas how to check if all of the joomla package files are on the server?

Thank you

That behaviour is standard and works well for those still to set up their site.

Not really an expert here but you could try:
1. Simply renaming the installation folder to see if this gets you past the issue above
2. Installing a fresh 1.5.12 joomla instance in another folder then doing some kind of diff comparison to see which files you need to overwrite in your corrupted site

rename installation folder and change the configuration.php file with the correct values

user, password, database name

Thank you for the replies, I renamed installation folder and now I'm getting a blank page (but not redirected)

Will check mysql user permissions to see if the user can access the database.. the info is there in the configuration.php file.

Thanks, will post back with update.

Any chance it's a problem with the cache?
