Global Configuration CSS Does not load

Post by rickyrickster » Thu Dec 17, 2015 1:57 am

Joomla Version: 3.4.6

Hi!,

I was able to access the global configuration page and activate caching yesterday and it displayed fine. I was even able to go in an hour later to disable and re enable caching. But today when I tried to access it everything gets displayed as if there is no css being loaded at all. This is the only page on the website that acts like this. Every other page in the backend displays perfectly fine and the frontend has no errors also.

What I've tried:
Updating joomla from 3.4.3 to 3.4.6
Removing the TagMeta extension (this was installed today but I really don't think that installing this could screw up the global config page)
Changing administrator templates from isis to hathor
Replacing isis and hathor css files with brand new ones downloaded from the joomla website
Checking the database and clicking fix just in case
Updating all extensions to their latest versions
Clearing and purging the cache

Just to be clear after each solution I tried I cleared the cache and force refreshed the global config page but the problem persists.

I tried to look up a solution and I could see that some people had the same problem but for joomla 2.5 over 3 years ago. Their fix was to delete a file that does not exist on my installation.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou!

Does the login page have CSS and if not can you send me a link (PM). I'd like to confirm stylesheet paths etc.

Also check your logs (apache or nginx etc)... look for entries relating to your style sheets.

Try to clear your browser cache first. Also check in your phpinfo if you have pdo installed and enabled for mysql and sqlite to your server

Solved :)

PHP Fatal error: Class 'JdDatabase' not found in /~/libraries/joomla/database/driver/jdiction_mysqli.php on line 37, referer: http://~/administrator/index.php?option=com_installer&view=manage

If I rename the jdiction_mysqli.php to ~.php__, the error has disappeared.

To solve the problem simply delete the file jdiction_mysqli.php

Located in: /~/libraries/joomla/database/driver/jdiction_mysqli.php

Best Regards!

If you don t use jdiction i think you are ok in everything. Other wise you should update jdiction or ask them if it is their issue.

Check PDO if is not installed. Also put debug on. Also you can ask your host to open error reporting or to fix it to can see the errors.

This sounds like the same issue as in this thread...
http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=706&t=902880

If so, your site has apparently been hacked ... The fix is listed in the above thread, (Many thanks to toivo) as well as a link to the security forum where it outlines the steps to take to check and secure your site.

That's it!!! :)
I very, very rarely use Global Configuration (I have several sites and tend to use a similar configuration.php on all of them) so I hadn't noticed until today that it wasn't working on this particular site. I no longer any of the multi-language extensions as the Joomla core does want I want now. This site used to be a JoomlaFish from way back in 2004/5. A couple of years ago when converting to J3, I explored several solutions and abandoned them, JDiction must have been one of the ones I installed and uninstalled; obviously it doesn't uninstall completely.
Thanks again for posting your answer. ;)
Best
