Unable to access any backend function, receiving multiple error messages

Post by stormy1206 » Fri May 24, 2019 5:39 pm

Hi All,

I have a website that anytime I enter some sort of backend funtion, I receive an error message. I believe Joomla was automatically upgraded and somehow the upgrade fubar'd everything. I contacted my hosting provider and they said they don't know after looking into it. They tried everything.

For example: when clicking on Read Messages I get a 404 - Component not found.
when clicking on Global Configuration: Error You are not authorised to view this resource.
when clicking on Menu -> Manage: 404 - View not found [name, type, prefix]: menus, html, menusView

Permissions are correct. I went back as far i could for a backup and the same thing happens. Must've happened why before and I only just found out because i went to do some page updates.

Really annoying. I really don't want to redo this website especially when an auto upgrade did this.

Joomla does not have auto upgrades, unless your host has some facility or you have subscribed to a web based service that does upgrades.

How did you restore the website using an earlier backup and from which version of Joomla? Was the Joomla folder cleared before the files were restored?

That information and some more is required. Please post the results of the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions from viewtopic.php?f=806&t=969442.
