I had JDownloads version 188.8.131.52 set up on my Joomla 2.5 and started to encounter some bugs so I figured I needed to check for an update.
My host will not update the server to allow me to use Joomla 3 so 2.5 is as far as I can go.
I decided to update JDownloads to the latest version for Joomla 2.5 so I downloaded JDownloads 2.5.28.
I tried to follow the instructions on the documentation, but ran into an error message when trying to uninstall 184.108.40.206 saying:
"Cannot find XML setup file" (for each component/plugin/etc.)
So then I tried removing all the jdownloads folders from the ftp (after making backup of my downloads folder).
I then tried to update to 2.5 from the extensions Install tab which led to an error message saying:
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....
So now I'm stuck. 220.127.116.11 won't uninstall and 2.5 won't install. I think I might have to delete tables in phpmyadmin? But my host hasn't given me access to it.
Any help with this would be appreciated.
