Joomla 3.2 Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to fix a blank screen after upgrading to Joomla 3.2

clock December 20, 2013 07:46 by author ben

In the process of updating some of our Joomla template packages from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.2, I've just come across an easily circumvented bug during the update process

What is the error?

The error occurs during the installation of the Joomla 3.2 via the Joomla Update component and ends in the user being presented with a blank screen. In most cases a blank screen means that there is a php error and because error reporting is set to default the error is not displayed on the screen and so all we see is a blank screen.

How to turn error reporting on in Joomla if you can't access the administrator.
To confirm the error that you are dealing with you need to turn error reporting on in the site's global configuration. Normally this is accessible via the control panel however since it's not possible to access any pages in the administrator you need to adjust the setting manually.

1. In your site's root locate the file called configuration.php




2. Open the file with a text or code editor and edit the current setting for error reporting.



3. The default setting is usually "default" and so in order to display errors on the page you need to change this settign to maximum.


4. After doing this and refreshing the front or back end of your site you should see the following error.

Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in /PATH-TO-YOUR-SITE/plugins/system/remember/remember.php on line 94

Now we know what we are dealing with
So now that we have a discernible error on the page we know which fiel is causing the issue and gives us some material to start doign a google search with.

The solution
The solution is to temporarily disable the remember.php file which is a part of the core Joomla installation. Renaming files in your installation with error reporting on is a very useful tool to investigate the cause of errors in your Joomla installation.





If all goes well after you refresh the page you should now be able to navigate around the administrator.
Renamed the remember.php file to the original name again the site functioned properly.

Free, Best and Reliable Entity Framework 6 Hosting with ASPHostPortal.com

clock December 11, 2013 05:34 by author ben

Entity Framework is actively developed by the Entity Framework team which is assigned to the Microsoft Open Tech Hub and in collaboration with a community of open source developers. Together we are dedicated to creating the best possible data access experience for .NET developers.
The Entity Framework version 6 Release Candidate is now available to developers for immediate download. The open source object-relational mapper is designed to enable .NET developers to work with relational data using domain-specific objects. Entity Framework allows programmers to create a model by writing code or using boxes and lines in the EF Designer. Both of these approaches can be used to target an existing database or create a new database

There are The Top features of Entity Framework 6 :

  • Connection Resiliency - enables automatic recovery from transient connection failures.
  • Async Query and Save - dds support for the task-based asynchronous patterns that were introduced in .NET 4.5. With .NET 4.5 Microsoft introduced async and await keywords but in EF 5 Microsoft didn't have time to add support for async query and save but now with EF6 it is supported.
  • Code-Based Configuration - gives you the option of performing configuration - that was traditionally performed in a config file - in code.
  • Dependency Resolution - introduces support for the Service Locator pattern and we’ve factored out some pieces of functionality that can be replaced with custom implementations.
  • Interception/SQL logging - provides low-level building blocks for interception of EF operations with simple SQL logging built on top.
  • Testability improvements - make it easier to create test doubles for DbContext and DbSet.
  • Features that come for free - These are capabilities that are part of the core. You don’t even have to know they’re there to benefit from them, much less learn any new coding. This group includes features such as performance gains brought by a rewritten view-generation engine and query compilation modifications, stability granted by the ability of DbContext to use an already open connection, and a changed database setting for SQL Server databases created by Entity Framework.
  • DbContext can now be created with a DbConnection that is already opened - which enables scenarios where it would be helpful if the connection could be open when creating the context (such as sharing a connection between components where you can not guarantee the state of the connection).

Top Reasons To Choose Entity Framework 6 Hosting

Joomla Hosting :: New Features of Joomla 3.2

clock December 4, 2013 07:38 by author Mike

Joomla 3.2 is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.

Joomla 3.2 is truly a Something New for Everyone release, which standard-term support release and is a one-click upgrade (not a migration) from previous Joomla 2.5 and 3 series releases.

Joomla 3.2 Hosting Features
Here is a list of the top new features worth checking out in Joomla 3.2:

  • Content History - Content versioning is Joomla's feature for storing, comparing, and reverting content. For example, you can use it to change back to a previous revision of an article if a mistake happens.
  • JUX Improvements -There have been dozens of improvements to the Joomla User eXperience (JUX) to provide a more user-friendly CMS. Two of my favorites are the cleaned up control panel and top menu. I especially love the way the new control panel looks.
  • Front-end Administration of Global Configuration Settings - Joomla now has two new menu item types that allow end-users to change some of the settings from the front-end. The component uses a web-services approach to change the settings.
  • TinyMCE Update - TinyMCE has been updated to 4.0 and it looks amazing. Just compare the before (above) and after (below) screenshots to decide for yourself.
  • Install from Web - The Install from Web feature will include free and commercial extensions, with commercial extensions redirecting to the developers' sites for payment, then automatic installation.
  • Joomla Multilingual-site Automatic - For those wanting a multi-lingual site, you'll now be able to set one up automatically during Joomla's initial installation saving you precious setup time.
  • Improved Template Manager - All that could be done in Template Manager was to edit pre-existing CSS files of templates, to edit root template files, and to duplicate templates.
  • Post-install Messages - There's now a post-install component that is used to notify admins of important information when Joomla or an extension is installed or updated.
  • RAD (Rapid Application Development) Layer - Joomla's new RAD layer is a rapid application development framework on top of Joomla.
  • AJAX Interface - oomla 3.2 has also added an interface for AJAX entry points. This will save development time and also provide standardization for 3rd party custom extensions.
  • Micro-data Semantics Library - Another Library that has been added for developers is one that implements http://schema.org micro-data semantics.
  • HTML5 Form Fields and Attributes - improvement for developers is the addition new HTML form fields and attributes.
  • Two Factor Authentication - TFA produces an extra temporary security code that is then sent privately to the user (e.g. to their smart phone app) and which allows them to login. This prevents unauthorized login attempts.
  • BCrypt encryption of Passwords - Joomla now provides an even stronger password encryption method using BCrypt.
  • MooTools to jQuery Conversion - Much of the Joomla Core has been converted from MooTools to jQuery, as jQuery has become the default Joomla library in Joomla 3.
