Usually this has something to do with your host's settings. One solution that commonly works is to enter a value for the $live_site variable in the configuration.php file found in the root directory of your Joomla site files. The value of the variable must be manually edited.

Typically, it would look like:

var $live_site = 'http://example.com';

But, if you access your Web site in a folder, it would be like this:

var $live_site = 'http://example.com/joomla';


Note: If the $live_site variable is already set correctly then try

var $live_site = '';
