chmod 755 the /installpath/js/ folder, and folders within.

then inside /installpath/js/lib/ CHMOD 644 the javascript files there.

Not sure if the head.php fix is needed or not, but now my admin menu is showing.

Worked after applying the following from the /installpath/js folder

find ./ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \; && find ./lib -name *.js -exec chmod 644 {} \;

And the following the post here to change the comment in lines 98 and 99.

Restarted Apache and all is good.

yup smile

Just did another install on another domain, looks to be a chmod issue with the /js/lib/ files AND the head.php file needed.

With those 2, you shouldn’t be seeing any problems

this definitely solved my problem of the admin menu not appearing after a fresh install, my file permissions were already changed for the specifed files, but i hadn’t added the edited head.php file
