hi,
After updating this version, I can not access the System Information, Global Configuration, Extension Manager, My Profile,...
I'm using:
1) nginx servert as frontend apache as backend.
2) PHP 5.3.23 with APC enabled.
I have tried to remove cookie on my browser. The Administrator login screen displays this message:
Use a valid username and password to gain access to the administrator backend.


I have tested on my local, everything works well.
Does anyone get the same problem?
thanks

Don't mind, I have solved this issue.
I re-update with Joomla_2.5.x_to_2.5.10-Stable-Patch_Package, my site comes back.

I have a big problem

After I used the automated administrator Joomla version updater to do a basic update to Joomla 2.5.10 my drop down sub menus when clicked on suddenly do not open to category blog but to nothing ( white blank page with template around) and the front page article does not appear although some of the modules on the font page still do ... do see www.gebedsklub.net This happened immediately I did the update!

I was running 2.5.6 and went to update to 2.5.10. This failed to upload via standard update method. Kept coming with Error Null. Tried package via Extension Manager, Error loading file to server. So downloaded file, unzipped, removed installation folder and copied up to server via FTP. Site ok, Backend appears ok. Went to Extension Manager > Database and it had warning two entries both the same =

Warning: Database is not up to date!
1 Database Problem Found

Database schema version (2.5.9) does not match CMS version (2.5.10).

I clicked on Fix and one of the entries disappeared but still have one Warning. I tried to re-install using the first two options mentioned above but still had the same installation error.

Any ideas how I can resolve.

Have the same problem after an update from 2.5.9 to 2.5.10. Updated via the installer in the backend.

Okay, found the problem. It is related to the version number 2.5.10 and the used sorting algorithm for arrays.

The schema is generated from the highest number of all .sql update files in the folder administrator/components/com_admin/sql/updates/mysql or sqlazure. The used folder handling class JFolder (libraries/joomla/filesystem/folder.php) does sort all files in the function files with the following PHP function:

Code: Select all

asort($arr); // line 502


The main problem is that this is not a "natural order" algorithm. So the version 2.5.10 is sorted directly after 2.5.1 and not after 2.5.9.

How to fix it? Change this line into:

Code: Select all

natsort($arr);


and everything is correct and you can lean back! ;)

Note: The database is already up-to-date if you get the mentioned error! The problem is only an inaccurate evaluation of the current version due to the wrong sorting algorithm!

PS: The files are loaded for the schema determination in the class JSchemaChangeset (function: getSchema) in the line

Code: Select all

$updateFiles = $this->getUpdateFiles(); // line 173

I'd some issues after 2.5.9 - I couldn't change a menu item from text Separator to Category List.

Exported the database and created a sub-somain on the host, and thought I'd cracked it.
2.5.10 came along and I thought I'd install that, maybe that was the original problem.

Now everything is pear-shaped. My home page featured articles only show the titles, not the content.
In desperation I've sent an email to the host provider to restore last weekend's backup - no I didn't do a backup prior to the update (stupid of me to trust that it would work, I know).

Anyone else with similar issues. 2.5.9 with MaxiMenuCK.

regards

Kubik-Rubik - Could you do a gentle step-by-step on the above fix.

I've located two 2.5.10.sql files (two different folders as you said). Where and what code should I add?

Thanks Nick. I look to see if I can maybe report a bug. With the autoupdate from 2.5.8 to 2.5.10, my Featured Articles have Titles but don't have Intro text despite their settings to show.

**Anyone giving advice on exactly where I put Joomla_2.5.x_to_2.5.10-Stable-Patch_Package.zip to re-update from cpanel? I think it is suppose to go in public_html and then unpack but...I don't want to break anything.

Yep, just put it in the Joomla root directory (usually "www" or "public_html") and then extract it through cPanel. If you don't have a recent backup, it wouldn't hurt to make one first. I always back up my sites before updating Joomla, "just in case"...

You're welcome, SummitAwards!

For the featured articles, it's likely not a bug, but rather a bug fix and now your correct setting is showing (I know; it sounds a bit strange). Try checking your settings for the menu item and check the "Show Intro Text" setting.

Hope this helps!

Yes, the mentioned check function is only called after a click on the "Fix" button. If you update through the installer and don't click on the button, then you won't see the bug.

For the issue in which your article text is not displaying, go to the article manager page and click options.
On the tab for articles change show intro text to show.

Unfortunately this will mean that if you were hiding introtext inyour full articles this will now display.

You can fix this with an override right now or we will be doing a fix and release it shortly.

On the natsort versus asort we need to not break the API so it's not as simple as changing just that line but that is fantastic that you ran down the problems so well. I think perhaps we need to add an option and defaul to asort since that is what is expected currently.
