All Notifications in Admin Panel are Red except for the Backup

Post by fidelfloris » Fri Aug 12, 2022 12:42 pm

Good afternoon,

In the backend of my website I have a problem.

Under notifications all but "Backup up to date" are showing red.

I have installed the Joomla 4 website with Akeeba Kickstart a few weeks ago.

I have done this with a backup from a Joomla 4 website.

What is the problem?

I have clicked on Back up up to date.
So the system made a backup.

Now all the notifications are all green again.

But I still don't understand why?

Aha, I thought every button is red except that one.

But if you moved web and there no backup, maybe it just want have one. Maybe that is in Akeeba configuration.

It might be simpler if you provide a screenshot of your site showing the red notifications, assuming you mean the notification boxes illustrated below (for my site they are all green):

Are you seeing all or only some of these as red? Some may not be applicable (and may not even be listed in your site).
  • Backup
  • Joomla system update
  • Extensions Update
  • Overrides
  • Download Keys

Good morning,

I have added a screenshot with the Dutch notifications that are red except one.

Thanks for the screenshot.

It is strange because for instance, I would expect the Extensions update box to show the number of extension updates like "(4)" in parentheses. I think the core update notification also shows the version number of Joomla that is available too.

Have you checked each one of the notifications and run through the checks (such as checking for updates, new joomla version etc) and also check the template overrides? Also try the Refresh Cache in Extension Manager, and a general clearing of the browser cache?

Those notifications are generated by plugins (quickicons), and you can see them listed in the Plugins Manager. They don't have any configurable options. Perhaps disable them temporarily, clear/refresh cache then close down the browser. Use a different browser, login into your admin account, go back and reenable those plugins then check them again in the dashboard screen?

Just wondering if a refresh of the joomla files may help. Under Joomla update, there might be a button that says "Reinstall core files" or if not, you may be able to do so with the Upload and Update function by uploading the 'update' package for the same version of Joomla you're using.

Good evening,

I have tried to do everything you described.

But it didn't work.

Please take a look at the attachment.

This is the result when trying to reinstall the Joomla core files.

What is wrong with this website?

Best regards, Floris

that 404 is the MediaWiki used by Joomla.org for their documentation - doesn't seem to have anything to do with your site.

I would restore from a backup then. Clear out the hosting space completely, and restore your backup, either one you made yourself, or if you're lucky your host may be able to restore, to a point when all this started happening (i.e. the odd notifications on the admin panel that you originally asked about).
