Fatal error's: Class 'JMailHelper' not found/Undefined class

Post by bfaridnia » Mon Oct 05, 2009 6:17 pm

Hi receive the following two errors:

"Fatal error: Class 'JMailHelper' not found in (MYSITE)/public/components/com_contact/controller.php on line 118"

This occurs when trying to submit an email contact form on the front end.
Lines 113-123 look like:

Code: Select all

/*
		 * If there is no valid email address or message body then we throw an
		 * error and return false.
		 */
		jimport('joomla.mail.helper');
		if (!$email || !$body || (JMailHelper::isEmailAddress($email) == false))
		{
			$this->setError(JText::_('CONTACT_FORM_NC'));
			$this->display();
			return false;
		}
and

"Fatal error: Undefined class name 'jmailhelper' (MYSITE)/public/libraries/joomla/database/table/user.php on line 157"

This occurs when trying to modify user settings in the back end. (editor or any other settings)
Line 157-159 looks like:

Code: Select all

if ((trim($this->email) == "") || ! JMailHelper::isEmailAddress($this->email) ) {
			$this->setError( JText::_( 'WARNREG_MAIL' ) );
			return false;
		}
I verified permissions on both files and they are set to full Read Write Execute. Did not notice these issues until I added the Contact Us page on the front end.

Any ideas?

Just checked my PHP version and I guess the Hosting Co. Changed it to PHP5. I Changed to PHP4 temporarily to see if this resolved the issue and it did not.

The class JMailHelper is defined on line 29 of libraries/joomla/mail/helper.php. That file is either missing or corrupted. Try copying it from the installation package to the server. If other similar errors occur, it is best to copy all the files.

Will do. When you mention copying all the files, do you mean all files in the Mail Directory. I am planning on upgrading to 1.5.14 will this upgrade copy those files over or just updated files. If not, I can download an installation package and copy the files.

The upgrade package does not necessarily have that particular file. It is best to extract the replacement for the corrupt file from the original installation zip archive for your version, test the site carefully and if everything works all right, then upgrade.

What if you don't have the original installation zip? And is toivo talking all the files in the mail directory?
