Reinstalling deleted Joomla 2.5 core extensions

From Joomla! Documentation

(Redirected from Reinstalling deleted Joomla 2.5 core extensions)

Some Joomla 2.5.x core components (Banners, Contacts, Newsfeeds, Smart Search, and Weblinks) can be deleted via the Back-end: Extensions > Extension Manager > Manage > (select + delete)

Core component installation packages don't exist because it's too much work to maintain, and Joomla 2.5 has a nice feature called "discover".

Note: The following method is recommended:

  • upload the contents of a Joomla full package (without /installation/ directory) to your website
  • use Extensions > Extension Manager > Discover to discover & install uninstalled extensions.
  • The components table structures + the component reference in #__extensions + the component menu items will all be created automatically.
  • The component reference in #__assets will not be created using "discover": to recreate, use Components > [component name] > [Options] (icon in upper right corner) > Permissions (tab) > [save & close]
