Is there a way to install an Admin template?
No, there is no need to "install" the Atum template.

The solution is simple. @ceford showed you the answer:
See this section—lines 134-166—of the .htaccess file:

Code: Select all

## These directives are only enabled if the Apache mod_headers module is enabled.
## This section will check if a .gz file exists and if so will stream it
##     directly or fallback to gzip any asset on the fly
## If your site starts to look strange after enabling this, and you see
##     ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED in your browser console network tab,
##     then your server is already gzipping css and js files and you don't need this
##     block enabled in your .htaccess
<IfModule mod_headers.c>
	# Serve gzip compressed CSS files if they exist
	# and the client accepts gzip.
	RewriteCond "%{HTTP:Accept-encoding}" "gzip"
	RewriteCond "%{REQUEST_FILENAME}\.gz" -s
	RewriteRule "^(.*)\.css" "$1\.css\.gz" [QSA]

	# Serve gzip compressed JS files if they exist
	# and the client accepts gzip.
	RewriteCond "%{HTTP:Accept-encoding}" "gzip"
	RewriteCond "%{REQUEST_FILENAME}\.gz" -s
	RewriteRule "^(.*)\.js" "$1\.js\.gz" [QSA]

	# Serve correct content types, and prevent mod_deflate double gzip.
	RewriteRule "\.css\.gz$" "-" [T=text/css,E=no-gzip:1]
	RewriteRule "\.js\.gz$" "-" [T=text/javascript,E=no-gzip:1]

	<FilesMatch "(\.js\.gz|\.css\.gz)$">
		# Serve correct encoding type.
		Header append Content-Encoding gzip

		# Force proxies to cache gzipped &
		# non-gzipped css/js files separately.
		Header append Vary Accept-Encoding
	</FilesMatch>
</IfModule>
Simplest solution is to delete these lines from that file. I have never needed to use these lines in any .htaccess file for J!; in fact, the "template .htaccess" for J! 4.x (htaccess.txt) seems to cause problems unnecessarily. I've had this problem before and, when I've deleted those lines, the problem went away. 8)

Hi, I tried this, and I'm still getting the backend with no styling. Is there any other fixes for this?

Hi, it's not a new installation. I was updating Joomla, it was working before that.

There are a few anomalies which may not be directly involved in the back end issue but will cause other problems.

I can't find the session option. But I went ahead and updated the other stuff. It didn't fix it, but thank you.

It's "save.session_path" in php.ini or talk to your host.
