(Site information/versions at the bottom) I have only used CiviCRM for event registration and entering other events in the calendar. More recently in anticipation of implementing membership capabilities, I had updated to the most recent version 4.6.11 and everything appeared fine. I received a message about running the update on the database and I did that. Everything was fine. But then when I logged on yesterday, I saw that 4.7 was out, so I went ahead and attempted to update to that version. I first just got the white screen. I went ahead and tried to reinstall the 4.6.11 version and got the following message:
Warning: require_once(/home/hobbits8/public_html/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm.settings.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/hobbits8/public_html/tmp/com_civicrm/admin/configure.php on line 115
Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/home/hobbits8/public_html/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm.settings.php' (include_path='.:/opt/alt/php54/usr/share/pear:/opt/alt/php54/usr/share/php') in /home/hobbits8/public_html/tmp/com_civicrm/admin/configure.php on line 115
I tried uninstalling the component and reinstalling again, but once I uninstalled the component, I no longer had the menu entry for CiviCRM. I also followed the instructions for modifying the php (global settings off--already off, max upload--already at recommended level, time --I modified from 30 to 600). I've tried installing both the old (4.6.11) and the new (4.7) from a file upload and also from the tmp folder on the server and get the same result. I saw something about needing to compare settings with the old backup, and of course (dummy that I am), I do not have a backup.
I see someone asked a similar question, but the response to him did not fit either his or my scenario (not upgrading from an old version of Joomla or even an old version of CiviCRM).
- Joomla 3.4.8
- PHP 5.3.29
- mySQL 5.5.45 (innoDB enabled)
Thank you. Patti
