Civix doesn't seem to work with Joomla! 3.9.3. According to this, Joomla! 3.9.3 doesn't allow loading of phar packed files. When I try to run civix, I get the following exception error in a red panel:

Unexpected file extension in "phar:///usr/local/bin/civix/bin/api/class.api.php"

I reverted to Joomla! 3.9.2 and civix works again.


OK, it looks like it's a problem with Joomla 3.9.3. See discussion here. Fix should be included in Joomla 3.9.4, which is out on 12th March.

  • No, the problem persists in Joomla 3.9.4.
