Error: Call to undefined method JLanguageHelper::parseIniFile()

Post by pescweb » Wed Jul 17, 2019 3:09 pm

Hello! after having done the update of joomla 3.7.5 to 3.9.10 I received this error: [17-Jul-2019 13:28:13 Etc/GMT] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined method JLanguageHelper::parseIniFile() in /home/pescwj6v/public_html/libraries/src/Language/Language.php on line 803

My site is in pt-BR (portuguese-brazil), and both the site and the administrator are without access, the pages are blank. Does anyone have any solutions to this error?

A blank screen = PHP error with PHP Error Reporting switched off.
I would first enable PHP Error Reporting.

I would make sure that I have a backup (files+database) of the previous site, but also of the current situation.

Then I would download a Joomla 3.9.10 full package from https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla3/3-9-10
unzip it on a local computer and upload via FTP all the files /folders to the server (except the /installation/ folder)

Hey guys,
I just came across the same error while moving my live site from my host server to my local machine. I've run the Forum Post Assistant but don't see anything that would point me to a solution.
I'm running Joomla 3.9.13. I tried copying the entire libraries folder from the original Joomla pacakge to my local directory overwritting the local files and folders contained in the local libraries folder to no avail.
Any other suggestions? Any additional information I should post?

Thanks

Did you use Akeeba to package your site and move it to your local machine? It is the most trouble free way to do so.
Also, I usually "switch off" SEF and .htaccess when running the site on Dev.

Thanks Abernyte for the reply and suggestions. I did not use Akeeba, I will try that.

Thank you

Hi bro,

I think the code package is missing some file. Therefore, it may cause errors as you have asked the question. Please update it completely or back it up
