Prevent Fatal Error Updating RocketLauncher 2.5 to 3.1.5

  • Prevent Fatal Error Updating RocketLauncher 2.5 to 3.1.5

    • Dear Members,

      We have discovered that our recently released J2.5 RocketLauncher packages (made available between June 20th and September 6th) have an issue with the Joomla update to 3.1.5.

      The following J2.5 template RocketLaunchers are affected:

      Gantry 4.1.11 to Gantry 4.1.16
      Camber 1.7 + 1.8

      Cerulean 1.2

      Clarion 1.5
      Corvus 1.0

      Enigma 1.7

      Modulus 1.7 + 1.8

      Momentum 1.8

      Nebulae 1.7

      Praxis 1.0

      Radiance 1.6 + 1.7

      Reflex 1.7 + 1.8

      Stratos 1.0 + 1.1

      Updating these J2.5 RocketLauncher installations to Joomla 3.1.5  results in a fatal error that breaks functionality for these sites.

      Therefore, we advise all our members who are currently using any of these packages on their sites to delete the following three files located in the Joomla root directory:




      After you have deleted these three files, an update to Joomla 3.1.5 should work without any issues.

      The purpose of these files was to create an informative error notice when trying to install the RocketLauncher into Joomla.

      As always, it's strongly advised that you take a full backup of your site before starting any update process. 

      We have already updated all the affected RocketLaunchers in our download area, so any packages downloaded from now on will not need the above change.

      If you have already upgraded from Joomla 2.5 to 3.1.5 and have experienced this error, please contact support for assistance: www.rockettheme.com/contact-us

      We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

      Thank you,

      The RocketTheme Team
