I have been experiencing quite a few problems lately and tried everything I can think of to overcome them, but it just seems to be getting worse.
A site of mine that has been working quite well, I thought, suddenly developed the problem that it will not show the Artisteer developed template anymore. I took the template from another site, and this would not display either - although working on the original site with a different host.
Support at Artisteer advised that: "There appears to be an issue with your Joomla installation.
I would suggest that you re-install it or contact Joomla for support.
Other templates such as free siteground ones will not install/display properly also."
This comment did not make much sense, but, in any case.
When I got to this problem site a while later, it was displaying a template named Siteground 16-44 or something similar. I assumed that somebody had accessed my site and introduced this template there. Since it was still a very small site, I assumed that that 'somebody' may still be there and for the experience - delete and rebuild.
My host advised that I use their facility called Softaculous and I e v e n t u a l l y succeeded in establishing the instance of Joomla.
I uploaded and installed Akeeba Backup, which would not go further than the page 'Post-installation configuration' - it is just dead and does not respond, but I will take that up with them as soon as they are back from holiday, if it pans out not to be part of the same problem!
I uploaded and installed Admin Tools and JCE without any problems. JCE had to be updated, and this occurred smoothly, without a problem.
Then I uploaded and installed the template, which I had saved fresh from Artisteer. Still a no-show! It's there, on the site! I ftp'd up and had a look.
Anybody have any advice for me? Please? Before I go into orbit without a countdown!
