Can't add or edit article

Post by coendeurloo » Sun Mar 27, 2016 3:20 pm

I have a Joomla 1.5.26 site running fine for years, but now when I try to open the page to add an article, or try to edit an existing article, it just keeps loading until it times out without showing an error.

I tried changing the default editor from JoomlaFCK to TinyMCE 2.0 but it doesn't make a difference.

When I try to enable FTP in the settings, I do get this error:

Warning: is_writable(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/tmp) is not within the allowed path(s): (//customers/5/6/9/salamanders.nl//httpd.www://customers/5/6/9/salamanders.nl//httpd.private://customers/5/6/9/salamanders.nl//tmp:/customers/salamanders.nl/salamanders.nl:/var/www/diagnostics:/
usr/share/php) in /customers/5/6/9/salamanders.nl/httpd.www/libraries/joomla/filesystem/path.php on line 200

Not sure if it's related to my issue though.

Your website is definitely hacked. I would suggest reverting to a backup and then security your website or doing the very long overdue Joomla update.

The reason why I'm confident that your website is hacked is that we worked (today) on a website trying to load the file "path.php" which is a non-Joomla malicious file.

Ouch! that's tough, I don't seem to have a backup unfortunately. Could there be another way to fix it, maybe reupload some joomla files?

Deleting the path.php doesn't work, as expected :(

My host (One.com) says they can't change that feature, but enabling FTP is the least of my problems: I simply can't add an article

Is there any way to counter the hack? Or maybe circumvent it so I can still add articles?

1) .htaccess is missing. Rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess

2) You have elevated permissions, set 755 for folders and 644 for files.

3) J1.5 was never made to work with php 5.6. Use 5.2, 5.3 or 5.4

4) J1.5 is EOL. Consider migrating to 3.5.

Is the Joomla tmp folder reported writeable? System Information->File Permissions

Yes it is, the logs folder isn't, though.

No, it's usually called tmp.

To different folders are set in configuration.php (tmp and log).

Do you use a full path or a relative?

var $log_path = '/customers/salamanders.nl/salamanders.nl/httpd.www/logs';
var $tmp_path = '/customers/5/6/9/salamanders.nl/httpd.www/tmp';

The logs folder is reported as not writable, the tmp folder is reported as writable in my joomla settings. The tmp folder is 777 when I check it in my FTP client.

Flag it 755 and set owner to 850757

Thank you for your time in replying! Changing the tmp folder from 777 to 755 doesn't help unfortunately. The owner was already set correctly.

Is there maybe someone who can help us out, when given admin rights and access to the FTP? We are an organization and can offer a small reward if the problem is fixable.

This is the error I get when I press ctrl-shift-J in Chrome in the blank page that follows the add or edit article link:

Code: Select all

http://www.salamanders.nl/administrator/index.php?option=com_content Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 503 (Backend fetch failed)
