I am getting an error 500 in the User Manager---> (any user) The User Manager screen lists my users but when I try to view or add a new user I receive the following error: 500 - An error has occurred. Layout "form" not found

I ran debug on it and this is what it shows: (I removed the full path)

Code: Select all

500 - •An error has occurred.•

Layout "form" not found

I am running:

Does anyone know what might be the problem? This was all working fine the other day, I can delete users with no problem. I also can log on fine and everything else is working great.

Oh yeah I can create a user in the front end with no problem. (I am using joomla core login)

I looked it over again and found what my problem was:

The /administrator/components/com_users/views/user/tmpl directory was inaccessable.

My bad. I was securing the directory permissions yesterday and accidentally set the chmod for that folder to chmod 0644 :-[

Well anyway glad to have Joomla. Thanks

Thanks for solving that and posting, I followed that trail, thinking I never really played with permissions there. Turned out my tmpl directory was flat out empty. Found the contents in the last known backup copy and added them back in!
Must have dropped them while moving from server to server. Very strange. If anyone sees a form.php file out there lost in cyberspace, could be mine.

I know this is an old post but it solved the issue I had using joomla version 3.4.5. Somehow through an earlier update I had dropped files default_batch_body and default_batch_footer in the tmpl folder.

thanks

This solution saved me hours of time. For reasons unknown, my default_batch_footer file had been dropped from 4 different components. I downloaded a full copy of Joomla 3.4.5, uploaded the footer file wherever it was missing, and voila! Thanks so much for this fix.
