Hallo,
Since yesterday I can't access any Joomla pages. (no BE and no FE). In a configuration.php I set the error display to maximum and now I get the following message: Warning: session_start(): Failed to read session data: user (path: /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-php74) in /home/admin/public_html/other_domains/lebensraum-vorpommern/libraries/joomla/session/handler /native.php on line 260 Error: Failed to start application: Failed to start the session
I looked at the databases and there is no database user.
What happened! I need help urgently. Is it enough if I create a new user and reassign the databases?

Vielen Dank die die schnelle Hilfe
Manuel

Hey there! If the database user was removed, I would expect you to just need to create the database user with the same password that is setup in the Joomla configuration file, add the user to the database, and then I would expect the connection to work.

If not, it might be best to restore the site from a backup when things were working well.

If you still see issues after that, just let us know and we can go from there.
