New Joomla Installation

Hi

I have started a new Joomla Hetzner installation and i am having a problem with the templates. Once i have uploaded the templates (the few that i could upload) - i have to make them default in order to make them work. Once that is done - i log to the front end to see how the template looks at its simplest form and i get this error message:

Warning: require_once(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/www/users/atelezmzauDStemplatesDSconextDSsystemDSrecolor.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/usr/wwws/users/atelezmzau:/usr/www/users/atelezmzau:/usr/home/atelezmzau:/usr/local/rmagic:/usr/www/users/he/_system_:/usr/share/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/share/www:/usr/share/misc) in /usr/www/users/atelezmzau/templates/conext/index.php on line 11 Warning: require_once(/usr/www/users/atelezmzauDStemplatesDSconextDSsystemDSrecolor.php): failed to open stream: Operation not permitted in /usr/www/users/atelezmzau/templates/conext/index.php on line 11 Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/usr/www/users/atelezmzauDStemplatesDSconextDSsystemDSrecolor.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /usr/www/users/atelezmzau/templates/conext/index.php on line 11

This is our website http://a1telecoms.co.za.www14.cpt1.host-h.net/

It happens with not only 1 template but 4...

what could the problem be?

the error message are similar to the other error message you are seeing,
 the joomla installation doesn't sound like its correct.
as  webtechgal said. can you confirm what you have tried that we suggested?
did you double check and re-FTP the Joomla files?
have you tried installed the Admin Tools by Akeeba to check the permissions?
double check the paths defined in the joomla installation (see admin control panel and system, also the configration.php file
the back up tool - is there an option to disable the ajax options.
the internal server error is probably becuase everything is taking too long - is this a shared hosting server? or a private single user server?

You'll most likely need to set the open_basedir path..
http://php.net/manual/en/ini.core.php#ini.open-basedir


If you are using Apache try this in the vhost file... (could be overkill but at least it will tell you whether this is the problem)

<directory /usr/wwws/users/atelezmzau/somewhere>
php_admin_value open_basedir none
php_admin_flag safe_mode 0
<Directory/>

This is rather complicated for a new Joomla developer...
IS there any chance of login in and checking this? Can you send your email pls?

Could you verify that the templates are compatible with the version of joomla you're using ?

shaunwinginAuthor Commented:
Yes the template is joomla compatible - we are using Joomla 2.8. This is the where i downloaded these templates.

I'm a little confused that your url seems malformed.
? http://a1telecoms.co.za.www14.cpt1.host-h.net/

Normally you would have a redirect if your domain was being redirected from www14.cpt1.host-h.net to http://a1telecoms.co.za/

When I look at www14.cpt1.host-h.net I see a webmail hosting page, so I don't think that is what you want in your url.

When I look at http://a1telecoms.co.za/ -  I see what I think is your current site

So it looks like your redirect in cPanel is not correct for your new joomla install in the root directory. The easiest thing may be to just to do a reinstall to the correct directory.

I would re-ftp  your Joomla files and then try again
also disable the cache
under Site - Global Configuration
then on the right hand side see Cache and make sure its off.

save the page and re-install your tempalte

Could you say what it is that you tried?

chilternPCCommented:
I would check the configuration.php file in the root and make sure the log and tmp paths are correct.
it also could be a folder permissions problem.
I would also download and install the free Akeeba Admin tools in Joomla  - this tool in Joomla will check the permissions of your system
download from https://www.akeebabackup.com/products/admin-tools.html

At the current moment it backups the files correctly and to the appropriate area on the control panel - however, a message of an error shows on the screen even though a successful backup has been done and is stored. Why is it doing this instead of a proper message letting me know that it has completed successfully.

chilternPCCommented:
depends on the error message.
what does the error message say?
sometimes one can hit the button twice as the response is slow and the second press cuases an error message.

Hi shaunwingin,

Have you been able to resolve your problem?

As chilternpc said you can disable the Ajax option in Akeeba. I have attached the first section of the setup where it has that option. This is version 3.6.12.

I also agree that Admin Tools is a excellent tool.
