I just downloaded the newest version of !JoomlaComment. I’ve seen a demonstration of this extension and really want it for my site. Upon installing the zip file I received two errors:

• Component Install: Another Component is already using directory: "components/com_comment"
• Component Install: Another Component is already using directory: "afterdark/administrator/components/com_comment"
Can you tell me how to correct these errors so that I can install this extension?

Also, I thought to uninstall and try it again but it will not allow me to uninstall the component. If clicked in my component menu I get this message on an otherwise blank screen:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /html/afterdark/administrator/components/com_comment/plugin/com_content/josc_com_content.class.php on line 38

I would appreciate any advice and assistance with these issues. I really hope these things can be worked out so that I can use the extension. It looks perfect for what I need.

However, if I cannot use it because of php4, can someone advise me how to uninstall this extension and fix the errors it has created?

PHP4 is a little old... check this thread:

Try this:
Try to Uninstall it...

Apart from that, I have done this a few times myself...
Those folders on the Server you must get rid of manually through the FTP connection. I normaly just rename them to ie.: "1com_comment" or something similar. This is basically just me being a bit scared of deleting stuff that might be needed later.

Then re-install the version that was working for you before.

Might be a safe word of advice to backup as much as possible, and even wait for the big boys (JonusC or Daniel) to confirm this... :blush:

Hey Man,
I'm really sorry that you have those errors, but I've written that in the past - no php4 and mysql4 support anymore. it is 2010 - we can't support technologies that are more than 5 years old. (like ie6 for example)

My advise would be - ask your host to move you to php5 :) preferably 5.2

Thank you for your responses. Nilis, I'll give that a try.
We use what we are given...lol. If I had my way, I'd just have my own server and host my own sites without going through another. But all of us can't have large command centers in our home so we get what we get from others. Kinda sucks. I'll see what my host can do for me. :D

Thank you for being patient with a newbie :D and for the quick responses.

We have all been a newbie at some point.
So the problems and frustrations we are well aware of!

It was a bit of a shock to hear that PHP4 is actually that old!!
It seems like it only arrived yesterday... :pinch:
But times do change, and as Daniel implies, trying to support "typewriters" on todays market is just not realistic.

I know the problem, and if it were possible, it would be supported. But as JonusC says on the link I posted, the next Joomla won't even work on PHP4.

On the positive side, upgrading the Server will open up your world again, and should not present itself as anymore of a problem than the previous version 4 was. Well at least that's what I have heard...

Think of it like this: A horse is fine animal and was used for transportation, but I would not want to try running it at 180 km/hour on the German autobahn today.

Ask your host to upgrade to php 5.2 and the errors will disappear.
