Content Language does not works

Post by ciambellone » Mon May 21, 2012 3:25 pm

Hi All,
thanks in adavantage for your help.When i go under Extensions --> language manager --> and i click on "Content Tab" i cannot display the page.

mysite/index.php?option=com_languages&view=languages

What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems

More information
This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:
•Internet connectivity has been lost.
•The website is temporarily unavailable.
•The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
•The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
•There might be a typing error in the address.
•If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.



Any suggesion??
Regards.
Matteo

Hi, welcome to the forums.
As you have posted this in the Installation Forum am I right in assuming this is a new installation of Joomla?
  • Have you already tried to add a new language pack to the installation?
  • If you have and this included both the site and admin language packs there may have been a corruption during the process. Or there is an error in the language pack itself.
  • If not, and this is the first time you have tried to enter this particular manager, it may well be that you have a corrupt installation overall. Usually if this was the case there would have been errors stating a file could not be found.
  • Have you changed any other settings either within the site, added any other extensions already, or tried to make any changes to the database?

Try
  1. Selecting the English Administrator language.
  2. Set it as default
  3. Uninstall the Italian Administrator language pack
Then
  1. Reinstall the Italian Administrator language pack from a new download
  2. Set the Italian language pack as default again.
  3. Test the functionality.

If the problem remains then I would suggest there was an error in the installation itself and some files were corrupted.

The solution is one of two things to try:
  1. Upload a copy of the joomla_root/ directories and files - excluding the /installation directory - to your server to overwrite those that are already there
    OR
  2. Do a complete reinstallation of Joomla after first deleting the current web site and dropping the database tables.
If you are on a Windows pc:
  • do not use Windows own archive manager to unzip the Joomla archive file. Try 7-Zip instead.
  • Also try WinSCP (I used to use Filezilla 5 years ago but it too corrupted files the same as Windows own FTP function) to FTP the files to the remote host.
  • I have been using both of these for a long time now without issue.

Have you tried Extension=>Extensions Manager=> Database tab, click Fix button?

Are you sure the language files have been updated for 2.5.4 if appropriate?

Try 1 above and copy the 2.5.4 files from a full stable download of Joomla back to the joomla_root/ as suggested. This will preclude any errors of file corruption of the Joomla core files.

(and fix the database)

500 is a general catchall error notice. Try checking the logs to see if there is any more information on this.

Please run the Forum Post Assistant to provide the information to help us resolve the issue.

Oh surprise surprise its Windows IIS. Is this a MySQL or MSSQL database? Anything else you omitted telling us?

[Mod note: Moved from Installation Forum to IIS Installation Forum.]

file and directory permissions are wrong. These should be 644 and 755 respectively. The configuration.php should eventually be set to 444 once set up etc is complete.
