I have a client whose Joomla 1.0 web site administration was hacked up by the previous developer and they want to move their components, modules, content to a fresh Joomla 1.0 install to regain control over Joomla administration.

The Joomla components they currently have do not include any "installation files". When you try to install them through Joomla administration it says these "installaion files" are missing. I assume it is referring to an xml file that provides information to the database for registration purposes. Is there another way to register these components without the xml file in each component?

For those that are also wondering you can register your components in the components table with a SQL query like this:

code:
INSERT INTO `jos_components` (`name`, `link`, `menuid`, `parent`, `admin_menu_link`, `admin_menu_alt`, `option`, `ordering`, `admin_menu_img`, `iscore`, `params`, `enabled`) VALUES
('Hello World', 'option=com_hello', 0, 0, 'option=com_hello', 'Manage Hello', 'com_hello', 0, 'js/ThemeOffice/component.png', 0, '', 1)

Interesting, thank you. Have two-three things to share, although I caught up too late.

In the same case on Joomla 1.5, here is how you can resolve it :

My experience with Joomla, as yours, shows that too much "hacking" ends up breaking consistency
(I spent a whole lot of time in my early freelance days, two years ago, fixing stuff like this).

And the best free CMS in the Universe, nowadays, appears to be Drupal I am impressed by Drupal 6.

I have Joomla! 1.0.15 Stable [ Daytime ] 22 February 2008 23:00 UTC version installed and am suffering horribly from the dreaded "Cookies Not Enabled" Javascript error when attempting to login to the frontend of Joomla.

I am not using other modules like CB or others that have their own login mechanism.

I have run the j-diagnostics.php found elsewhere in the Joomla forums and am not receiving any errors pertaining to the cookies or sessions.

I have the write permissions on the sessions directory set to 755 and when I login to the Joomla Administrator it sets the session cookie just fine.

I have tried using multiple computers, removed all cookies, cleared cache, used different browsers, etc.

I have Googled for "Joomla Cookies Not Enabled" and found a plethora of people complaining about the same problem but none of the "solutions" presented have worked for me.

When I try a fix and refresh the browser I do a server refresh at least twice to make sure I am not trying to login with a cached copy of the code.

I'm sure I am omitting other things I've tried...I really really really need help resolving this from a Joomla Super Guru! Pleeeeeease?!?!?!
