Ok so this is what I was writing yesterday. For Joomla 2.5 and 3.x only Check if the http:// prefix is missing from the URL. If it is, then it adds it. Note that In this case I have not taken https:// into consideration. It then tries to get the Joomla manifest file and checks whether is exists/is readable. If it exists then it gets the value from the <...

Here is a workaround to temporary reset your password for your account. Login to your hosting panel and use the database tool that is available (probably PHPmyAdmin). Load the appropriate database and then go to the jos_users table. (The database prefix might be different for your case). Go to the browse view of the PHPmyAdmin, so you get view of the ...

In addition to FFrewin's fine answer, here's a couple of alternative ways to reset the admin password. Notice Remember that most of these methods will set your password to something simple like admin. It's very important to set a stronger password afterwards. If there is reason to believe the site has been hacked, you might want to remove other users with ...

What I would recommend you do is: Export the database for the Joomla 1.5 site, apart from the #__users table Install a fresh copy of Joomla 1.5 on your localhost Import the database dump you downloaded before You should now have a fresh Joomla 1.5 site with all you content. Install redMIGRATOR which is a Joomla 1.5 extension that will migrate your site to ...

You might need to use MySQL to manually repair the table. If you can run arbitrary MySQL on your server, run the mysql CLI and use: REPAIR TABLE jos_users; Alternatively, phpMyAdmin (supplied by many hosts to manage MySQL databases) allows you to repair tables through a GUI. To do so: Access phpMyAdmin and select the Joomla database from the left-hand ...

I use J2XML which works great and it's free http://www.eshiol.it/joomla/j2xml/j2xml-1503.html

You can try redmigrator(free) or SpUpgrade (commercial). I try redmigrator four days ago and it works very well, if you only need the articles. If you follow the youtube redmigrator tutorial, it should be easy to migrate your content from J1.5 to J3.3 redmigrator Site: http://redcomponent.com/redcomponent/redmigrator redmigrator Tutorial: https://www....

You should save your data using a User Plugin - they're very easy to write. An example can be found at Creating a profile plugin, though the example might have more than you need. The events your code would go into are onUserAfterSave and onUserAfterDelete and are documented at Plugin/Events/User. These events will fire when a user is saved or deleted ...

Switching on the template preview mode might help so you can at least see the module positions. This will help you figure where to go (i.e. which module in module manager) to edit particular text. You can enable template preview mode by appending /index.php?tp=1 to your domain name. Joomla 1.5 is quite old now. In newer versions of Joomla (especially the ...

So, as promised: (Disclaimer: this is not at all best practice. It is some basic code which will work but does not at all conform to any standards of beautiful coding... Use once and delete.) First, make a backup of your template's index.php if you haven't done it so far (copy and rename or whatever you like, or by all means just download it to your ...

If you're running Joomla 1.5.14 or below then you should stick to PHP 5.2 as there may be a few functions and/or code snippets that may not work on PHP 5.3 However, if you're running Joomla 1.5.15 or above, you should be fine with upgrading to PHP 5.3. If you're using the OpenID library, then this won't be compatible with PHP 5.3 and thus you will either ...

Not a big difference so far for what you are after... $mainframe = JFactory::getApplication(); $menu = $mainframe->getMenu(); // Use this if you want to get all menu items from a certain menu $menu_items = $menu->getItems('menutype', 'mainmenu'); // This is to get the specific menu item by menu item Id $itemId; $item = $menu->getItem($itemId); ...

Finally, I've done the export/import via CSV (as I also had to edit all the fulltext entries) and here are the little things that I had to search for: export the Db via CSV, then edit it with Open Office Calc* edit the column so that they match the Joomla3.3 structure. set the column asset_idFK to O, Joomla will assign the correct value when you will open/...

I'm running a Joomla 1.5.26 site alongside a new J3 site under construction on the same PHP installation. The J1.5 site is running perfectly on PHP 5.6 without any changes to anything at all. The J1.5 site is a very simple site with only a few extensions.

Migrating Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 might be a complex process, depending on what extensions you have on your current website. It's almost never a one-click process. The same goes for Virtuemart. VirtueMart 2.x.x is a completely new shopping cart system which is not compatible with VirtueMart 1, and a one-click upgrade does not exist. First of all, make sure you ...

If you are interested only in versions of sites you manage, then you can create and install a small plugin which shares Joomla version by opening plugin URL, for example http://example.com/plugins/getversion/getversion.php?configuredSecret I did not need it yet so I don't have the code. But based on Lodder's answer, you can see how to read Joomla! mainfest ...

It's hard to say exactly what's wrong, but here's a couple of things you can try (please backup your configuration.php and .htaceess files before making any changes). Although you say your username/password is correct, try creating a new super-admin user by following this guide. What version of PHP/mySQL are your new server using? Is it the same as the old ...

Joomla 1.5 was not developed for thes like of newer PHP versions such as 5.4 as mentioned in your question. Newer versions of PHP may have deprecated or even removed/replaced functions which Joomla 1.5 may require. I would suggest installing PHP 5.3.x on your Xampp installation, then try running the installation again. Personally I would use Wampserver ...

I confirm Joomla 1.5.24 running on PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.17. PHP-FPM was installed with apt. Web server is nginx. All features seems to be running smoothly.

If you want to preserve your sanity, don't even try to perform migration manually. I have used Daycounts VM Migrator https://www.daycounts.com/shop/virtuemart-3/virtuemart-2-migrator.htm for migrating five (5) VM1 shops to VM2 in Joomla 2.5, and I have only words of praise for that extension's quality, stability and scalability. It's latest version now ...

So what I did was export the J1.5 jos_users table (minus the usertype and gid), and then process all the accounts through our audit and update processes, then imported them all into the J3.4 jos_users table. SELECT `id`, `name`, `username`, `email`, `password`, `block`, `sendEmail`, `registerDate`, `lastvisitDate`, `activation`, `params` FROM `jos_users`; ...

The best way to go about this issue is to persuade your client to undertake a migration to a modern stable version of Joomla (currently 3.6.4) or build a new site from scratch in case there is very little content. It may be and often is viewed by clients as unneccessary hustle and expense but in the long run it proves to be the best practice both for clients ...

I use SP upgrade by Cyend. It is a paid extension. But what I consider to be most useful with this extension, is the option to keep the same ids of the migrated data.

This is just an addition to the excellent answer from @Lodder. This is slightly offtopic but offers another approach to avoid this kind of issues. Nowadays one of the preferred (call it popular) approaches to development is running virtual machines on your PC that mirror as much as possible the configuration of the production server. For example you ...

My colleague and I worked this out. You edit the ps_product file in administrator - components - com_virtuemart - classes. You do a string replace for the attributes you want affected at the end of the "getDescriptionWithTax" function. For example, if you want "Remove Topping" to not be shown when its selected at its default value - "none" in this case - ...

To set something on Joomla 1.5, you will need to use setVar, like so: $template = JRequest::getVar('template'); JRequest::setVar('template', $template); Disclaimer: Joomla 1.5 is extremely old and is not officially supported anymore. You will also find people on here less willing to support you. Please consider migrating your website to the latest ...

If you've tried all of the above and you've had no joy. Here's a suggestion. Login into cPanel. When you get its dashboard, locate the Database section in your cPanel. In the Database section located the PHPMyAdmin icon. Click the PHPMyAdmin icon which takes you to PHPMyAdmin interface. From the left hand column, click the database name associated with ...

You may have a redirection conflict where the www version of the administrator login is redirecting to the non-www version of the website or vice versa. Try logging in to the www version of the website and the non-www version of the website to see if there is any difference. Check for any redirections in the .htaccess file and ensure that the $live_site ...

Joomla 1.5 is outdated and not longer actively maintained. Joomla community of developers is working Joomla 3. You are not going to find new extensions supporting the latest captchas. You can only develop your own custom code for this version and try to keep it running. You should definitely migrate to a stable and safe release (3.3.x). 1.5.x - 2.5.x are ...

GJC's plugin does the job. But this is using Joomla 2.5 and VM3. Still looking for an answer for 1.5, but might end up taking all sites to later Joomlas/VMs anyway. - http://www.gjcwebdesign.com/joomla-downloads/virtuemart-20-postcode-zip-code-shipping-plugin.html
