Joomla! version: 2.5.14
PHP version: 5.3.25
MySQL version: (unknown)
Akeeba Backup version which took the backup: 3.7.10
Kickstart version used to extract the backup: (unknown)
Description of my issue: Re. www.heswallphotosoc.co.uk
I deleted some module folders that had been left behind after uninstalling the associated modules. Before doing this I had changed the folder names (inserted "x-" at the front of each name) and waited a few weeks. There were no problems.
I then took an Akeeba Backup and finally deleted these renamed folders. The web site vanished with HTTP 500 errors.
I restored the web site using Kickstart, but with no success - still HTTP 500 errors.
I requested a web site restore from the host company. This took 30 hours (between requesting and being told it was complete). Still no success.only HTTP 500 errors.
I restored the web site to my PC under XAMPP using Kickstart. The web site failed to load. I copied a working "copy" of the web site (excluding MySQL) to the non-working version, which then worked.
I then tried uploading this working version to the non-working host version (excluding configuration.php) but the hosted web site still won't work.
In desperation, I reran Kickstart but again all I get are HTTP 500 errors.
I have read the self-articles and checked configuration files as far as I can, but everything seems to be as it should.
Throughout all this, I am able to access the Joomla Backend of my web site.
I would much appreciate any help you are able to provide as the web site has been down for 48 hours now.
