Components not showing in my Joomla components list

asked Oct 28, 2012 in Website Builder by Donald (2,780 points)
I recently updated to Joomla 2.5.6 and I have just noticed that if I add a new component, I can’t find it in the component list. I got a message saying that I have to update JCE, but I couldn’t find if in my component list. However I did find in the Global Configuration as my default editor.
Does anyone know what could be causing this? And why aren’t the components I’m installing not showing in the components list?
Any help on this would be really appreciated
Many thanks

This is a bug and you can fix this problem by replacing the component.php file.
You can either make a clean install or get this file from a clean install and replace it in your current install. The file is located at libraries/joomla/installer/adapters/component.php
Make sure you make a backup of your file before replacing it.
