0 Error decoding JSON data: Syntax error after upgrading to 3.6.4

Postby FlahDesign » Fri Oct 28, 2016 4:56 pm

Since doing a manual upgrade of my site from 3.6.2 to 3.6.4 I'm getting the JSON error and the whole site doesn't work.
Template is messed up, links don't go anywhere.
I did a search on the forum and found a similar issue with upgrades to 3.6.3.
I downloaded the JSON php check posted by Robwent here:
https://github.com/robwent/joomla-json-db-check
The first check corrected some errors but the site is still inoperable.
Is there a way to point out what extension is the culprit?
I have a huge number of extensions being used on the site and would like to streamline the search for the error.
The db check points to:
Checking table: caduo_extensions, column params

Row 1 is not valid JSON. Error: (Syntax error)
Content: {"jQueryVersion":"1.8.2","source":"local","jqunique":"0","jqregex":"([\/a-zA-Z0-9_:\.-]*)jquery([0-9\.-]|min|pack)*?.js","stripCustom":"0","customScripts":"","stripMootools":"0","stripMootoolsMore":"0","replaceMootools":"0","mootoolsPath":"//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/mootools/1.4.5/mootools-yui-compressed.js","ie6Warning":"1","scrollTop":"1","scrollStyle":"dark","scrollText":"^ Back to Top","lazyLoad":"0","llSelector":"img"}

But I am not versed enough in db editing to feel comfortable making changes unless I have a clear description of what I should do there.

Any directions on how to solve this error are appreciated.

THANK YOU! I didn't even remember I had that there. I disabled it and all is well after the manual upgrade.
