    Joomla bug? Joomla hack??

    Came in to a weird one this morning. Our Joomla-powered website was completely unavailable with the error "Fatal error: Cannot redeclare JRouterSite::_parseReqRoute() in /home/joom/public_html/includes/router.php on line 169"

    A quick Google seems to give no-one actually discussing such an error, just hundreds of hits for someone (the same person?) offering a freelance debug. And a quick look in the actual file shows the 7 lines starting at that one to be duplicated just before that point. Never had the problem before, and the file's not been modified since the install a couple of years ago!

    Anyone else ever had this?

    Only thing i can advise is to restore a previous backup version of the database and see how it goes from there.

    We've fixed it temporarily by commenting out the duplicate code. But we're baffled as to why it's there in the first place, and why it should break the site without warning after a couple of years' completely trouble free operation...

    I think it is a bug, but having googled it, and seen the freelance results, I wouldn't worry as they all seem to come back to the same request for help.

    Maybe you are just unlucky.
