Piwigo over wrote my Joomla files. How to reinstall Joomla

Post by Walkingmum » Mon May 18, 2015 8:14 pm

Sorry if this seems too simple but I've accidentally overwritten my Joomla 2.5 files. what do I need to do to make them correct. Can I 'just' reinstall Joomla 2.5? I'm fairly new to handling my server.

Download the Joomla 2.5.28 full package zip from http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla/frs/ . NB if your Joomla is a previous 2.5 version then you will need to login to see it. Upload the zip to the server and unzip or unzip and upload.

Is the configuration.php file intact?
Yes: Do as webdongle suggested, but leave out the installation folder.
