a new website with old DB
« on: 22.08.2015 18:07:39 »
hello all
for some reasons i had to delete all my files on the server of my joomla except the DB
so i install a fresh copy of my joomla 2.5.8 and connect the old DB to it
i try to install jdownload "com_jdownloads_3.2.35_J32 "to my new joomla but i have this error

Error. The installation was aborted as an existing jDownloads version 1.9.x has been found on the site. Please read the documentation FAQ in the 2.5 and 3.2 sections of the Documentation Centre at www.jdownloads.net about upgrading and transferring data. Do not uninstall any existing 1.9 series jDownloads until you have read the Upgrading Notes as otherwise you may loose data. This upgrade and data transfer procedure is only required the first time the new jDownloads 2.5 or 3.2 series is installed.

i can not find my answer the the above section.
maybe my case is especial ;D ;D

so any help would be very helpful
thank you

Seems there is much confusion! You cannot instal jD 3.2 series on Joomla 2.5.x
If you are planning to migrate to Joomla 3.x then you are better to reinstall jD1.9.6 and then follow the migration in the jD documentation.

What did you have pror to your files problem?
