It's all coming back to me! Well, some of it is. I think I used J2xml when migrating from 1.5 Anyway, I have now uninstalled it but still no missing buttons have appeared. Checked the DB and that seems ok. Here's the message;

Database schema version (in #__schemas): 2.5.6.
Update version (in #__extensions): 2.5.6.
Database driver: mysqli.
66 database changes were checked successfully.
24 database changes did not alter table structure and were skipped.

I gave humvee's 'Plan A' another try and overwrote the existing 2.5.6 live website installation with the full 2.5.6 core package [barring the installation directory] but the back end CP remains as before! 12 rather than 14 'buttons' [Joomla Update and Extension buttons still missing] and Joomla version not displayed. Where in the package would they be called from? Would they appear listed under Extension Manager:Manage ? If so, would a list of what is there [or access to it] help?

The version is in "libraries\cms\version\version.php"

You do have the "Extensions" at the top menu?
Some rows must be missing in the database.
This is the #_modules table:

I will look in the "libraries\cms\version\version.php" to see if there is anything obvious wrong. But it remains a mystery why, if something is/was missing, it was not repaired when I overwrote all the installed files with the full 2.5.6 package.

This is what appears in the http://nynehead.org CP.

You do have the "Extensions" at the top menu?
Some rows must be missing in the database.
This is the #_modules table:



I assume your question about "Extensions at the top menu" refers to the one showing in the image? In which case the answer is yes! Some rows missing from which database? And what should I do with the code you cite? I am no expert with MySQL but am willing to have a go! The site is all backed up. Here's the version.php. Can't see anything glaringly obvious; calls are there for version etc but to be honest I am out of my depth with this, so any advice MUCH appreciated!

The version in the footer is the row with id=86 in the #__modules table.
This is th sql to insert it. Replace # with your table prefix. Use phpmyadmin to inspect the table.

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO `#_modules` (`id`, `title`, `note`, `content`, `ordering`, `position`, `checked_out`, `checked_out_time`, `publish_up`, `publish_down`, `published`, `module`, `access`, `showtitle`, `params`, `client_id`, `language`) VALUES(86, 'Joomla Version', '', '', 1, 'footer', 0, '0000-00-00 00:00:00', '0000-00-00 00:00:00', '0000-00-00 00:00:00', 1, 'mod_version', 3, 1, '{"format":"short","product":"1","layout":"_:default","moduleclass_sfx":"","cache":"0"}', 1, '*');

In #_modules there only seem to be id nos 1 to 19 and none of them seem to have titles or module names referring to version.

Replace lmk with your database prefix.

Paste into the sql tab

Spooooky! Thanks for the help Per Yngve Berg. No idea what I am doing with MySQL really. But here's what happened.

When I open the sql tab there is this already there:

Code: Select all

SELECT * FROM `jos_modules` WHERE 1


Do I leave that and paste in all the code you quote? including:

Code: Select all

SET SQL_MODE="NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO";
SET time_zone = "+00:00";


With the sql tab open, if I click INSERT I get this:

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO `jos_modules`(`id`, `title`, `note`, `content`, `ordering`, `position`, `checked_out`, `checked_out_time`, `publish_up`, `publish_down`, `published`, `module`, `access`, `showtitle`, `params`, `client_id`, `language`) VALUES ([value-1],[value-2],[value-3],[value-4],[value-5],[value-6],[value-7],[value-8],[value-9],[value-10],[value-11],[value-12],[value-13],[value-14],[value-15],[value-16],[value-17])


If I just replace everything AFTER 'jos_module' with everything AFTER your `lmk_modules` I get the following error message:

Code: Select all

#1062 - Duplicate entry '2' for key 'PRIMARY'


with a rather fetching pink background.

Thanks again

That means that a row with id=2 already exists in the table.

Try a file with only those higer than 19.

Code: Select all

SET SQL_MODE="NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO";
SET time_zone = "+00:00";

INSERT INTO `lmk_modules` (`id`, `title`, `note`, `content`, `ordering`, `position`, `checked_out`, `checked_out_time`, `publish_up`, `publish_down`, `published`, `module`, `access`, `showtitle`, `params`, `client_id`, `language`) VALUES

(86, 'Joomla Version', '', '', 1, 'footer', 0, '0000-00-00 00:00:00', '0000-00-00 00:00:00', '0000-00-00 00:00:00', 1, 'mod_version', 3, 1, '{"format":"short","product":"1","layout":"_:default","moduleclass_sfx":"","cache":"0"}', 1, '*');

Well that seemed to go in OK - green message etc. And the two lines are there in the db;

Code: Select all

   Edit Edit    Edit Inline Edit    Copy Copy    Delete Delete    79    Multilanguage status          1    status    0    0000-00-00 00:00:00    0000-00-00 00:00:00    0000-00-00 00:00:00    0    mod_multilangstatus    3    1    {"layout":"_:default","moduleclass_sfx":"","cache"...   1    *
   Edit Edit    Edit Inline Edit    Copy Copy    Delete Delete    86    Joomla Version          1    footer    0    0000-00-00 00:00:00    0000-00-00 00:00:00    0000-00-00 00:00:00    1    mod_version    3    1    {"format":"short","product":"1","layout":"_:defaul...   1    *


but it has made no difference to the backend control panel! Still no version nor, more importantly, have the 2 missing buttons appeared.

The file in "libraries\cms\version\version.php" is presumably a general instruction called by other components. If that is correct, it seems to be working fine because the version is correctly cited under the system information. So is the problem not more likely to be found somewhere like administrator/components/com_cpanel/ and one of the files in there e.g. controller.php, cpanel.php or cpanel.xml failing to call the version.php?
