Hello I am the developer of the joomla site on the domain. The sites front-end has broke down (no css styling, images gone, links leading to 404 errors) and I can't login to the back-end of our webpage.

Thank you for your help.



I can login now and much of the frontend has come back up. alot of the front end is still broke (content and images floating to the left, missing images). Any advice on whats causing that?
Thanks again.

Hello madtalent,

Thank you for your question. This type of error is usually caused by the .htaccess file, I checked and noticed you modified the .htaccess file about an hour and a half ago.

I corrected this by renaming the existing .htaccess file from:


Then I made a copy of the default Joomla provided htacess.txt and renamed one:

So essentially I added Joomla's default .htaccess file back. After this your site loaded and the Admin Panel login is working.
