Joomla

Joomla is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS. Written in PHP, Joomla uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques and software design patterns, stores data in a MySQL, MS SQL  or PostgreSQL database, and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization.

I am trying to move a website to a new Linux server.  The Server has Apache httpd service running.  I have unzipped the home directory of the site to its original folder which is /home/user1/www.websitename.com/web/httpdocs.  The files are below this.  I am not able to browse to the website when I connect to the folder.  How can I get this to work?

I have a component called com_product that I developed. For the most part, its working properly.

I am having an issue when I add a category to the component.

I can get here:
Components -> Products -> Categories -> New
Product -> CategoriesProduct -> Categories -> Edit Screen
Then, I enter the data, hit any button, but the 'Cancel' button and I get this error:
Error message.
When I hit the back button, I can then hit the Cancel button and it takes me to the category listing page.

Anyone know what I'm missing within my code to get this working properly?

Here's my product.php file that sits here: /administrator/com_product/product.php
<?php

Hi All,

I inherited a Joomla 1.5 site.  Within the site, we have a training section and menu is broken.  
Joomla broken menu screenshot.  

Everything else on the site seems to work.  All the other menus work fine in the other sections.  I tried clearing out the cache and creating a new menu module for the site and that did not work.

Thank you for all of your help in advance

Hello  

My saturday seems to be filled with htaccess issues :)  BTW this is a different site than my earlier question today.

I have a client who needs to have a few generic php and html files in the root of the server.  The existing Htaccess file apparently is disallowing files to be in the root -- which gives a 404 errors -- even though the physical files exist in the root (/public_html)

The files mainly have htm and php extensions, but there may be jpg, gifs and perhaps swf extensioins.

It''s a Joomla site, and I'm thinking it might be a security feature.  (His old joomla site let him have these kinds of files in the root.  But I guess Joomla hyped up the security and is not letting them be viewed by the public.

Please look at the htaccess file and let me know if indeed there is a rule prohibiting this, and how I can eliminate that rule.  BTW there is nothing in the code that will identify the actual site.....)

We lost an employee to an illness and surgery for several weeks.  A Joomla backup file had been copied out to a new site space and Kickstart as well.  I am a SQL programmer, I do back end stuff.  I don't do anything with Joomla or setting up new sites in CPanel.  The site doesn't display in the browser with the IP address.  I found some great articles out there, but the instructions I've read are to open the kickstart.php file and then I'll be able to restore the .jpa file.  I can't even open the page in the browser, message is file not found.  I'm really stuck here and I'm hoping somebody can help me figure this out.  I'm sure it's not that complicated but I'm missing something.  Thank you in advance for your patience!

Our website seems to be running slowly. I believe it is needing an update to Joomla 3.7. We are required to backup our site before updating and we are also supposed to wait until Hikashop sends us an update notification.  How can I get our site to run more smoothly?

Previously, when i wanted to look at a page on my own site, i would 'disable' the hit counter by doing, e.g.

http://technojeeves.com/index.php/aliasjava1/109-stack-trace-to-string?limitstart=1

Now using Joomla! 3.7.5 Stable i find that this query string simply produces a page not found. Can you tell me how to continue to suppress hit count incrementation?

We tried to get google analytics included in a joomla website.  Had it in there from before, so just tried via plugin to insert a new google id code.  Broke website.  I tried commenting out the line- didn't work.  I tried defining the variable in configuration.php - didn't work.  Restored site from backup, but that didn't fix it.  This is for a small non-profit website.  We also recently upgraded joomla versions.
Thank you,

on my Xampp 7.1.7 (OSX version) I am trying to install Joomla 3.7.3; after installation, I change the root permission to 777 to enable the installer creating configuration.php file. Something strange happened:

1) in the admin login page, if I write wrong credentals I see the error: "Warning: file_put_contents(/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/mysite/administrator/logs/error.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/mysite/libraries/joomla/filesystem/file.php on line 440"

2) if I tried to update Joomla to latest version, I see a popup "Error: invalid login" and closing it, I see a message "

Warning JFTP: :mkdir: Bad response. JFTP: :chmod: Bad response. Warning: file_put_contents(/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/mysite/administrator/logs/joomla_update.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/mysite/libraries/joomla/filesystem/file.php on line 440 Warning: file_put_contents(/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/mysite/administrator/components/com_joomlaupdate/restoration.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/mysite/libraries/joomla/filesystem/file.php on line 440"

3) Searching on internet, I found a solution: enable the ftp layer. Ok, if I do this with default Xampp credentials (nobody / xampp) I see this triple warning: " Warning JFtp::login: Unable to login × Error Looks like User's credentials are

[Webinar] Lessons on Recovering from Petya

Skyport is working hard to help customers recover from recent attacks, like the Petya worm. This work has brought to light some important lessons. New malware attacks like this can take down your entire environment. Learn from others mistakes on how to prevent Petya like worms.

If you Google something I notice that some websites are just random blogs or options of a product or something. I notice that some not all are made by WordPress or another CMS.

My question is do people pay to just give an option or blog about something fake? I know that for a free WordPress site they include "wordpress" in the link. WordPress' I've seen don't have this watermark.

Would like to know how this works.

Hi All,

Our new web master decided to open the Joomla HTML editor on one of our Articles.  This messed up our buttons and now the web page shows a bunch of code underneath it.  Please see attached image.

I tried adding the HTML and script tags to the code and the HTML editor strips it out.  I have not idea on how to fix this.

Hi experts,

I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask, but I am stressing out big time as I just messed up the homepage on our site.  

I am using Joomla and we have a "Homepage callout" area on the frontpage.

Previously it looked like this - http://imgur.com/a/Pn1qd

Now it looks like this - http://imgur.com/a/So12z

Would anyone have any idea how I could restore it or recreate the button to appear like the original format?  I can't even seem to position the button to the right of the text without it getting all messed up, let alone have the blue background.  I am so clueless.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.  Thank you!

HI all,

I have a website that's Joomla based. I keep getting security breaches where malicious code is injected, etc.

It's not a mission critical site, so it's more of an annoyance than anything. But what are some of the preventative measures that people take for something like this?

Also, are there tools that clean up these malicious injections? An anti-virus for Joomla websites?

Thanks in advance.

What is the best way to approach this?

I want to create a database field in phpmyadmin/mysql within a Joomla3.7.2 site for a referral ID from a friend on sign-up. How do I set up the php URL to pass that as a session variable upon going to a special link, and following them through to sign up?

I am looking for an extension to Joomla!
The goal is that registered users should simply be able to post a one (or two) lines of text.
So the forum should simply show the list of such texts, ordered chronologically (newest first).
This will serve for our Bridge's Club : members should be able to post a message like "I am looking for a partner next monday"
Then another member seeing this, answer for exaemple "Okay for me"

I thought that Kunena was the extension to use for that so I installed it, but if it is the good tool, I don't know how to simplify the publication process etc...

Hi, some time ago our sales guy employed a friend to change our company website from a simple fixed website to a full blown PHP-MySQL Joomla based website. This friend is no longer contactable and now we have a website no one can edit, and it has been hacked with the addition of links to Viagra websites.

I'm the IT Manager with obvious networking skills and I can write HTML ok, I know SQL server but I've never had a crack at a PHP - MySQL website of any sort let alone Joomla. I'd love to have a go at this because learning this is on my to do list, but in truth I just have to get this fixed and move on. Is there a simple way to edit a Joomla website in-situ or do I have to download the website and export the databases ... or do I just hire a professional?

I am using Joomla 3.6.5.   Last week  I have made changes to a slideshow extension(display on the Home Page) as well as to my events calendar(RSEventsPro). When I open a browser to view the changes, none appear until I use Shift Refresh. The same is true when displaying the Upcoming Events on my Home page. Open my website (www.fitndance.com) and notice that the slideshow only has 4 items, the Upcoming Events(on left side) display older events and then click on the Calendar(on top Menu) and notice on May 19th is blank. Then click on Shift Refresh on the Calendar, and the Swing Dance event appears. Then return to the Home page and click Shift Refresh and the Upcoming Events updates and the slideshow has 5 events.

I have cleared System Cache and does not resolve the problem.

Here is a video link showing what is happening. https://youtu.be/Kg3TqkA9-v8

Hi, I ran Google's PageSpeed on one of my sites and I was able to bring it from 41 to 90/100 on the Desktop version and 75/100 on the mobile section, however, I cannot eliminate some scripts and CSS files on the render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content, because the JS scripts and CSS are essential for the template to work correctly. I tried looking on the template's developer customer support but nobody has posted a solution for a few years now.
I need to hide/make invisible to PageSpeed the following files that show in the scan:

https://www.timeshareorlando.com/cache/template/jquery.min-5e67c45d.js?d22298adce58731eecc1751acaa6ee90

Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:

Any idea as to how to approach this would be appreciated.

Good afternoon

I am trying to add a background image to a Joomla 3.6 site. I managed to make the background blue (https://chairrepair.co.za) but instead of the blue I want to use an image.

Any ideas? Problem seems to be that the feedback to similar questions on the Joomla forum relates to version 3, and it seems 3.6 is a bit different to 3.

Appreciated

Hi,

I have a couple of joomla sites which I moved from an old server to a new server.  They were running fine on the old site but when I moved them they are now running extremely slow - one site I have just copied as, the other required a couple of changes to the template as it was using <?  instead of <?php tags but otherwise a straight copy.  

There are other sites on the server and they are ok so it is not a server issue.  

Below are details of the old server and new server setup -  I would like some advice on what I need to check to resolve.

Old server Php 5.3.14, Apache 2.2.22, MySQL 5.0.27
New server Php 5.4.12, Apache 2.4.4, MySQL 5.6.12

The joomla websites are running the following the versions of Joomla 1.5.15 and 1.5.19.

I can provide phpinfo settings if required.

Thanks
Valerie.
