I noticed that the last column state in the table #__extensions always has a value 0. Can you tell me what the purpose of this column is?


This column is used to determine whether an extension is installed or discovered.

The following values define the state:

  • 0 = Installed
  • -1 = Discovered

I'm not 100% sure if there are any other states. If so, maybe someone else could shed some light.

  • I tried updating this cell, setting a value 1. As a result, the component disappeared from the extension manager search, as if it was not installed, however I could access its view. Then I set 0, and the component appeared again.
