Problem: It has come to our attention that the release archives obtained from are corrupted in certain Windows setups, which renders the CMS unoperational. This only affects the tar.gz releases, when extracted with WinZIP or IzArc.

Verification: You are affected by this problem if files in the following directory doesn't have correct *.php extensions (truncated to *.ph):

Solution: We recommend either extracting the tar.gz archives with [url=]7-ZIP[/url], or downloading the newly available ZIP archives from [url=][/url].


Thanks for your patience.
