i'm sure it's an older version of joomla. i'm not particularly
interested in "fixing" it, right now all i want to do is get it to run
on another server (mine), then i'll set everything to read-only and
leave it be while we start over from scratch using phpbb or something
for the revamp.
i've copied the content and two mysql databases that i'm told are needed
but it's clearly not working as it should, and i don't know enough about
joomla or php to figure out what's wrong. that's what i could use a
helping hand with (and i'm willing to pay for sufficiently talented help).
