Error in site backend components menu: CONTROLLER_ADMIN

Post by nemmar » Sun Dec 17, 2017 3:19 pm

Hi,

I have Joomla 3.8.2 and I have an error entry in the site backend components menu: CONTROLLER_ADMIN

Screenshot: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bpr6TK ... sp=sharing

Does anyone know why that CONTROLLER_ADMIN and all it's submenu items would be appearing in the backend menu under Components?

Most of my sites have the same extensions and some display this problem and others don't.

Thanks for any advice.

the language file is missing. check in your administrator/languages/ your language folder.

Hi,
Thank you for replying to my question.
How do I determine which language file is missing? My site is in English so the only language folder I have in that location is:
/administrator/language/en-GB/

There are a lot of en-GB files in there for extensions, modules, plugins, etc.
I'm not very knowledgable about the programming files for Joomla and extensions. Is there a way for me to determine which extension language file is the one missing?

you need to find out what is that extension first.

Hi,
I was able to determine the URL in the site backend menu when I click the CONTROLLER_ADMIN link under the components menu:
/administrator/index.php?option=com_cloudpanel

Here is the screenshot with the global config > language debug on/off: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qrmfFr ... sp=sharing

It's from a CloudAccess extension that I uninstalled years ago. I had CloudAccess hosting many years ago but their hosting sucks and they screwed up my Joomla sites, so I had removed their extension. But I guess it still lingers and creates problems. I searched in cPanel and found 3 files with "cloudpanel" in the name and deleted them. But the site backend menu still displays the CONTROLLER_ADMIN link.

Does anyone have an idea how to remove whatever files are causing that unwanted CONTROLLER_ADMIN link and menu items in the site backend? I would never deal with CloudAccess again so I won't bother asking those crooks. There are no more "cloudpanel" files in my site folders so I have no clue where it's coming from.

Thanks for any advice.

go to phpMyAdmin and find in the "_extensions" table this entry. Delete the entry if present.

Follow up by going to the _menu table and find the entries for this extension and delete. After that they won't show up anymore
