I had a Joomla site that got hacked.  I got everything working once I moved it to my Microsoft IIS server.  The only thing that is not working is the admin page.  I'm not sure if this is due to the hack or the move.  Once I log in I get a blank/white screen.  I checked the permissions and everything seems okay.  any ideas?

Have you checked the installation/folder of the admin pages? Are they even there? Are they being linked properly? Try just downloading the defaults from joomla and just inserting them where the old ones were

I see an admin page folder and the contents seem to match my other installs.  I copied and pasted the admin folder from another install and it didn't help.

The site is REALLY simple.  Is there a way to install a new install of Joomla and copy over the skin/theme from the old site?  All I need is the theme/skin for the content is so simple.

At this point  I simply want to export/copy the template from my old joomla install to another..  I can enter in the content again.  Does anyone know how to do that?

I ended up simply copying the template file from the other site at the folder level to a new Joomla install.  I then went to the extensions manager and ran a discover.  Once the new template was discovered I installed it.  I'll now add the content back for I can still access the frontend of the original site.  I'll just copy and paste the content.

Where I didn't truly fix the admin interface.  I was able to accomplish the same goal by installing a new instance and copying over the template.
