Answer for Users:
If you are getting this error because you are using some extension that sends emails, please visit the developer page, and first make sure you are using the latest version.
If you are 100% sure that you are using the latest version, but still getting this error, you should contact the developer and ask them about this error. Sending them ...
Found the issue in my own custom component...ugh. I couldn't find the offending code because I was looking for JHtmlBehavior::mootools.
But the offending code was this:
Changing it to this fixes the problem:
Simple answer is no.
Extended answer is mysql can log queries, however it has limits, and if there is even one difference between the environments it would lead to those queries not functioning. Even with that the only way to do it is though the server itself, since as far as I am aware there is no special logging added to JDatabase (Also if a component ...

Finally I found the solution for this Error by passing the object of DateTimeZone as a parameter (notice the $date->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone($tz)); in the code bellow). It's working fine.
if($date === null )
$date = JFactory::getDate();
$tz = JFactory::getConfig()->get( 'offset' );
$date->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone($tz)); //here!
Well, a quick look inside the templates folder of the site, presented me the ugly truth - it seems that whoever did the upgrade, has never considered to clean up the site from old code/extensions/templates that are incompatible with Joomla 3.
So, in the templates folder I found 8 old templates since Joomla 1.5, that were still considered as installed ...
I know this doesn't answer all of your points but for me I have multiple sites all running 3.x
I use Akeeba, which notifies me of updates available, and is set up to create system restore points (basically SQL backups) when Joomla updates. So my routine is:
Backup every site
Check for updates to backup extensions
If there are updates for the above run ...
Go to Components>Joomla! Update
Click the Options icon in the upper right corner
If it's on Long Term Support, switch it to Short Term Support and save
See if that makes the 3.3.X update show up.
I believe it's a safe guard so you don't accidentally bump a site to 3.x without thinking about it first.
I had this issue a long time ago too. I cleared and purged all available caches, tried again and it worked. You do have an alternative which is download the update package:
Once done, install it as you would any other extension via the Extension Manager in the Joomla backend. Please remember to take a backup of your 2....
There was a similar question a couple of months ago, and the user ended up starting over with a fresh installation of Joomla.
However, this might not be an option depending on how much work you've put into the site.
Although it's hard to give a definite solution, here's a couple of things you can try:
If you're using .htaccess, try renaming it temporarily....
First, go to PhpMyAdmin, open the #__users table and check that the usertype columns exists.
If it doesn't exist then Create a new column and call it usertype.
If it does exist, then follow these steps:
Download the Update Package manually from here
Extract it to your desktop, then open the following file administrator/components/com_admin/sql/updates/...
I had the same problem recently. What helped was:
In administrator/components/com-admin/sql/updates, delete all the sql files for versions older than the start version (in my case I was updating from 2.5.28, so I deleted everything with an older version number.
Then I entered /administrator/index.php?option=com_installer&task=database.fix
This got the ...
Databases tends to be a big problem with all software development. Keeping things synced as a major pain for us too especially with staging and production sites.
One thing I have started to look at lately but not yet implemented is:
Another 'poor mans way' is to export the DB schemas (if you're concerned for schemas, data is probably a ...
Quick Dirty Method:
Take a backup of your Joomla 3.4.3 site and set it up on your localhost. Once done, download the Joomla 3.4.1 Update Package and extract it in the root directory. Don't worry about Database changes as there haven't been any since 3.4.0.
Install a fresh copy of Joomla 3.4.1
Re-download and install all 3rd party extensions
Apparently there area couple of issues with Joomla 3.5.0, one being to do with the session.
Joomla 3.5.1 will be released tonight, hopefully fixing your issue.
It may be an idea to put your site offline for a couple of hours until the update is released. And in future, I'd recommend taking a backup of your site and testing Joomla updates locally before ...
The answer probably depends on what sort of information is stored on the intranet and whether the employees and contractors who have access to the intranet are competent and can be trusted.
Is it possible that an employee or contractor could connect a compromised laptop to the internal network where malware on the laptop could compromise the ...
I have faced the very same problem many, many times. In the meantime I have learned that one can force browser to clear its cache only by versioning assets loading. So you need to find where your template loads its CSS files, and to add at the very end of loading command some type of versioning string, something like "?v=xxx". Once the browser caches ...

The manifest cache is a field in the #__extensions table which holds the informations from the extension manifest file (the xml file describing the extension and what to install).
You can refresh it as well in the extension manager using the refresh cache button.
I don't know where the error is coming from, otherwise I would fix it :-)
I'd say it's safe. The ...

If you used the hosting built-in 1-click-installer for Joomla, then you probably managed to bypass the minimum PHP version requirements.
However you wont be able to use Joomla until you upgrade to atleast 5.3.10, as stated in the requirements:

You can use mediaVersion. There are a few ways to do that.
Look into those 2:
Manually adding version to loaded files:
$v = JFactory::getDocument()->getMediaVersion()
JHtml versioning of loaded files:
// Add script
JHtml::_('script', 'xxx.js', array('version' => 'auto'));
// Add Stylesheets
JHtml::_('stylesheet', 'xxx.css', array('version' => '...
