Check the error messages and you will notice the file index.php has an incorrect path to joomla.php.

Please check the php version in the remote server and your localhost are the same one. Also compare the php modules in both the servers.

i tried to fix it, but now it come out with this message

Warning: require_once(d:/scigate/includes/version.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\wamp\www\scigate\includes\joomla.php on line 71

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘d:/scigate/includes/version.php’ (include_path=‘.;C:\php5\pear’) in C:\wamp\www\scigate\includes\joomla.php on line 71

I have just install Wamp2.0h and Joomla Ver 1.5. Can I know how am I supposed to extract my co existing website from the remote server and in which location am I supposed to put it at localhost Joomla.
My current co existing website at remote server using Joomla ver1.0.0.



It is a couple of years since I used Joomla I am fortunate to say :slight_smile:

Anyway try this:

  1. make sure Wamp2.0h is working OK
  2. try using a database
  3. try a index.php “Hello World” page
  4. make sure Joomla is working OK
  5. try a Joomla index.php “Hello World” page
  6. try using a Joomla database
  7. read the updated Joomla Manual on where to install your online existing website
