  • The project does not conform to the requirements of the project rules.
  • Your project was not related to Joomla!

When I created my account, I typed in the wrong UNIX Name. Can you change it for me?

Unfortunately, this is something that we can not do. The only option is to request that we delete your project, so that you can resubmit it for approval.

Why I get a "Permission Denied" message when trying to view a project?

The project was migrated and still needs to be activated by the admin. As soon as we get a request from the admin, we will assign the project to them. It is the admin's responsibility to make a project public.

My project got rejected and I was asked to re-register it. Now I cannot re-submit it, I get a message saying that the project already exists. What do I do?

Re-register your project using a different "Unix Project Name". (This is a known issue that is being worked on as we speak, apologies for the inconvenience )
