When you copy your files, you don't touch your data, database or current extensions (as long as they don't change any core files). The error message in question is normally the case of a corruption of a file.

Mod note: can you please change your signature according to the rules that can be found [url=http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=65[/url]

If you get a JFactory::getDate() error, you arn't running 1.5.5, you're running either 1.5.0 or 1.5.1... Sorry... You may want to fix that FIRST...

I had this same error too! It is because the display error settings are turned on in php.ini. Just add this to your .htaccess file, located in your root Joomla directory:

php_flag display_errors "0"

ROTFL... NO! You do that on a live site that you know works incase anything breaks. You don't do that to mask a problem that already exists...

As for how to fix? Copy a fresh install of 1.5.6 over your site... Something was upgraded wrong at some point...

I get the same error when I try to save a form in CKforms. I have a fresh install of joomla 1.5.6. Using PHP 5.1.2 on a linux server.

When I checked the error in CKforms.PhP i noticed that there was no entry on line 92 which is where the error message said the error is coming from. It references a $getdate but I don't see an entry like that. I do see a $datenow, but these are further down the page. Is any of this connected?

Any help would be appreciated.
