Fatal error: Class 'SCStringUtilities' not found in / home / xxx / public_html / xxx / administrator / components / com_jfbconnect / jfbconnect.php on line 16
Is this a fresh install of JFBConnect, or did you migrate the site from Joomla 2.5 and are using old tables from that site? We're trying to recreate the problem, and should have an answer soon, but more information would help.
Also, latino7, are you seeing both of the same issues (the SQL install error and the error when going to the JFBConnect admin area)?
Hi, I am having a very similar issue. This happens when trying to install com_jfbconnect_j3.0_v5.0.0Beta.zip on Joomla 3.
And I get the same exact issue as OP when trying to access the component.
My Joomla installation is a few months old, and is hosted on a not so fast GoDaddy linux hosting plan.
We've found the issues. It's only on new installations (not migrations) that the issue should occur. The database upgrade steps are causing problems depending on configurations, and should be an easy fix.
We'll be releasing an updated beta version either later today or tomorrow.
Very sorry for the troubles, and thanks for your report,
We just posted Beta2 of the release for Joomla 3.0. This release should work on sites that have been migrated from 2.5, new installations or installs that were using the Beta1. We have extra checks and logic to fix the issues from Beta1 in this release, so you should just be able to install over the top of Beta1.
Please do not uninstall beta1 first. Our installer needs to know that you were on Beta1 when installing (so it can fix some of the issues with Beta1). If you uninstall it, Beta2 probably will have issues too.
Hope that makes sense, but if you still have questions or issues, definitely let us know.
Fantastic! That makes us very happy.
Very sorry you ran into issues before.. and we're glad we called it a beta We tested the heck out of it, but with a brand new release for a new Joomla, odd things are bound to happen. It should be very stable, believe it or not. Of course, if you run into anything else, just let us know.
I am having this problem, and I just installed 5.0.0Beta3 - Joomla 3.0 what is causing the error ? How do I fix this?
"Fatal error: Class 'SCStringUtilities' not found in /home/grindsqu/public_html/administrator/components/com_jfbconnect/jfbconnect.php on line 16"
I'm not sure why you'd be seeing that issue. The beta3 has fixed that problem for other users.
Did you see any errors appear during the installation process?
If not, can you try/tell me the following:
* Re-install the component. You don't need to uninstall first. Not any error messages you see.
* Go to Extensions -> Extension Manager. In the "Type" filter, select "Libraries". You should see "SourceCoast Extensions Library" in the main area. Make sure it's enabled and the version is 2.0.0.
* Check the /libraries/sourcecoast directory and make sure there is a utilities.php file and that it has some code in it (not empty).
Let me know if any of the above seems out of the ordinary. Beyond that, we'd need access to the admin area of your site to investigate further.
Are you sure you're installing the beta3 version? Did you ever install a previous version of JFBConnect? That error shouldn't be happening anymore. It was a complication of earlier betas, but that hasn't been reported in more than a week and we don't know why you'd see that now. Knowing your past installations would help.
What version of JFBConnect did you originally install? Was this a migration from a Joomla 2.5 installation, or were you only trying the betas on this site?
From what it sounds like, you probably had beta1 on there. If so, there's 2 options:
* Re-install the beta1. It will still throw an error message during installation, but that's fine.
* Do not uninstall it.
* Install the beta3. That should detect that beta1 is installed and peform the fixes necessary.
Or (this is harder)
* Uninstall JFBConnect
* Use a database manager like PHPMySQL and delete all of the xxx_jfbconnect_yyy and xxx_opengraph_yyy tables from your database. That will clear out JFBConnect
Hope that helps, but if not, let us know.
No problem. Sorry for the issues with the initial beta, but everything should be much smoother with the 'final' release that's out now. Should you need anything else, just let us know.
Finally, if you haven't already, please consider leaving a rating and review for JFBConnect, or our support, on the Joomla Extension Directory. It certainly isn't required, but is very appreciated:
