Joomla - Infinite loop detected in JError

Infinite loop detected in JError error very often occurs after moving Joomla website to another hosting company or another server.

Issue is normally caused by incorrect database or path settings in configuration.php file

Open your configuration.php (it is located on your Joomla root folder) and double check settings, especially following lines:
public $host
public $user
public $password
public $db
public $dbprefix
public $log_path
public $tmp_path

Joomla 1.5 - Remove numbers from Category List View

You may prefer not to have numbers in front of Article titles in Category list view. Joomla 1.5 doesn't provide functionality to remove this.
This can achieved via a simple core hack.
  • Open file:
  • Scroll down to line 69 and delete (or comment out) following code:
    <td align="right">
          <?php echo $this->pagination->getRowOffset( $item->count ); ?>

Warning: This is a core hack. Any Joomla update may overwrite your changes.

Backup any files you are changing and document the changes.

Apple ID login not working: "The apple id you entered couldn't be found" and "Fatal internal error occurred"

This morning (16 December 2011) a user came and complained that he wasn't able to login into his iTunes account nor on this iPhone nor on the PC. He was worried account has been hacked or otherwise compromised. I quickly checked my own account and wasn’t be able to login either.

Error in an iPhone was "The Apple ID you entered couldn’t be found or your password was incorrect. Please try again."

Trying to login into Apple account on a PC the error was: "Fatal internal error occurred."

Apple Account Error "Fatal internal error occurred"

This seems to be quite widespread issue at the moment, with user all over the word not able to login into their iTunes and other Apple accounts with Apple IDs.
Apple support acknowledged the problem, but there are no workarounds or ETA. That's the "beauty" of Cloud services – if something goes wrong all you can do is sit and wait…


Problem was resolved later the same day. Seems that the glitch was caused by new Apple's music service iTunes Match launch.
Apple experienced similar problems with new service launches before, so I will leave this post online - it's not the last time Apple launching a new service...
