I have just completed a new install of 2.3.3 which appeared to complete but I am not seeing any buttons in the CMS and getting some strange behaviour. In Firebug I get the error.

tinyMCE is not defined
anonymous()leftandm...255758522 (line 402)
anonymous(Object textarea.htmleditor=Object, Object name=parentNode, Object name=applyToParent)base.js?...255758460 (line 190)
anonymous(Object name=parentNode, Object name=applyToParent)base.js?...255758460 (line 188)
anonymous()base.js?...255758460 (line 188)
[Break on this error] Behaviour.register({'textarea.htmleditor...CE.getInstanceById(;}\n

I assume I am missing some files but I am not sure from where, I have pushed all the CMs files back up and the jsparty ones but it its is still a problem

Any ideas where the issue might be?

It sounds like the JS cache files cant be regenerated. All the JS needed for the CMS to function is dynamically combined and stored in the /assets/ directory - if the webserver does not have permission to write the files to the location then you'll get a 404 response trying to include them. I would recommend changing the assets directory to 777 permissions to see if this fixes it.

Thanks ajshort

Looks like it actually was a missing file as from the sapphire directory as uploading this again has fixed the problem.
