Repair a crippled Joomla installation (for Joomla! 1.5)


For this post to have a meaning, you have to read the A method to repair a crippled Joomla! installation

A joomla! 1.5 installation does not differ much from a 1.0 installation (for a non-programmer’s eye, the programming model is totally different), but the configuration file has been changed. Instead of a list of standalone constants, everything is thrown into a class, and the mosConfig part from the variable names is missing.

Everything is working the same as in the Joomla! 1.0, except step 9., where you have to replace the following values:

a:)
var $log_path = ‘yoursitemaindir/jxcms/logs’;
to
var $log_path = ‘yoursitemaindir/logs’;
b:)
var $tmp_path = ‘yoursitemaindir/jxcms/tmp’;
to
var $tmp_path = ‘yoursitemaindir/tmp’;
