admin panel redirects to clientsite with error page

Post by rmatthewsacog » Tue Oct 20, 2015 6:08 pm

I migrated the site from a different server and everything works fine except for the admin panel. When I login, it seems to be successful, but redirects to the client facing side with an error page. redirect page is www.mysite.com/index.php with error #404

An error has occurred.
The requested page cannot be found.

You may wish to search the site or visit the home page.

If difficulties persist, please contact the System Administrator of this site and report the error below.

#404 Component not found

I'm pretty sure there is a table in the database or config file that needs changed, any ideas?

There could be many reasons why you're having this problem. It could be that your website is hacked (which is not unlikely, since you are running a very old version of Joomla), it could be that one of your plugins (security plugins) has gone bonkers due to misconfiguration, it could be file permission issues, it could be an .htaccess rule, it could be that you have uninstalled an important extension (running on the homepage), etc...

Are you on 1.5.26? What version of php are the server running?

It says "#404 Component not found". Do you have all files in administrator/component?

http://joomlacode.org/gf/download/frsre ... ackage.zip

Download and unzip the file on your computer
Upload all file to your site with ftp, except the folders /installation and /templates
