I'm not sure what caused it but recently I updated my Joomla website, as well as the JDownloads plugin, and now whenever I go to the JDowloands page I get the following:
If difficulties persist, please contact the System Administrator of this site and report the error below.
500 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 17
Nothing else has changed on the site or the host.
If I try to create a category I get:
Joomla\CMS\Filesystem\Folder::create: Could not create folder.Path: /cat
The folders I have checked all have 755 as the permission level so I'm stumped as to why it's stopped working.
Also when i run a Full Scan i get the following error:
Error! Upload root directory does not exist.
Please create it with an ftp program such as FileZilla and use that to set the directories access right to CHMOD 0755 - otherwise jDownloads will not work. See FAQ for more on setting file access rights.
Yet again nothing has changed except updating joomla and the extension, on both of my sites and I'm getting these permissions errors, everything worked before.
