Something's Wrong, What do I do?

  • If you ever find your self about to ask this question in the forums, here are some steps to try first.
  • Run the Integrity Check

    The integrity check runs through your system and makes sure all your modules are installed and that all the things they need setup have been setup.

    Its the first thing you should do after installing anything new.

    It can be found at

    As the admin user in the ACP at CORE -> SYSTEM CORE -> TOOLS -> INTEGRITY CHECK
  • check all the checkboxes then run the integrity check after installing new modules.
  • Reset the Caches

    Jamroom uses a caching system to help lighten the load on your server and speed up delivery time. Usually Jamroom does a good job of resetting caches as needed, but after you make changes to templates your changes may not appear immediately.

    Time to reset the caches.

    It can be found at

    As the admin user in the ACP at CORE -> SYSTEM CORE -> TOOLS -> RESET CACHES
  • Reset the caches after any template changes if the changes don't show up immediately.
  • Check for any system red lights

    Not all servers are setup the same. Check your server is ready to go by scanning the system check page for any red lights that could cause issues for your Jamroom installation.

    When you access it via your web browser at YOUR-SITE.COM/repair.php" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://YOUR-SITE.COM/repair.php.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://YOUR-SITE.COM/repair.php.html will show:
    Quote: This file must be renamed to repair.php to function!

    so login to your server via FTP and rename it to repair.php

    Then access

    and you will see:
