I have a Drupal 7.41 in a remote server linux configuration

Installed and Enabled

  1. Internationalization
  2. Locale
  3. Variable
  4. Entity Traslation
  5. Content Translation

Next, want to Add the Spanish and French languages. But, there is no Languages option seen under "Regional and language" in Admin/Configuration.

What is missing? Tried flushing all caches. No difference. Logged in as admin user/1

  • I never saw something like this, try access to YOUR_SITE/admin/config/regional/language let me know the result. Dec 8, 2015 at 4:19
  • Tried this - it showed "You are not authorized to access this page." Don't remember seeing any access related steps in all the multilingual setup docs.

  • you are logged with the admin account? Dec 8, 2015 at 17:07
  • Please EDIT your question to indicate if you are yes or no using "user/1" in your scenario ... Dec 8, 2015 at 17:40

I found a permission named Administer languages, I make some test with it and I can reproduce your issue. Go to YOUR_SITE/admin/people/permissions and search under the Locale section the Administer languages permission and give the permission to your user.

  • Curiosity: if you were able to reproduce this "bizarre" issue, I'd assume that you did so with a userid different from user/1, right? Because user/1 ALWAYS has access to anything (which I'm sure you know). Maybe you want to enhance your answer to clarify that ...? Dec 8, 2015 at 17:39
  • @Pierre.Vriens you are correct this is the reason for I make the question about the user to the OP Dec 8, 2015 at 17:51
  • 1
    Well, depends what you call "admin account" ... If (eg) user/3 has been granted role "administrator" also ... Would you call that an admin account or not? IMHO that's different: in that case user/3 has access to anything granted to role "administrator". While for user/1 there is no need to "grant" those same permissions (user/1 ALWAYS has all permissions, and is "considered God in Drupal". So that's why I think you've to be careful and differentiate, no? Dec 8, 2015 at 17:59
  • @Pierre.Vriens you're right, In the case of user/1 this is not the solution. I have installed the same modules of the OP and I see the link, I don't know the solution. But my answer can help other users. Do you think that I should delete my answer? Dec 8, 2015 at 18:12
  • NO, don't delete it, just enhance it a bit further to "share what you learned" via my small "hey wait a minute"-intervention here. No need for credits or mentioning my name or so, because YOU did the effort to double check the challenge I posted in these comments. And I'm happy knowing that "you" learned something from it, n'est pas? After you're done please notify me via an extra comment (so that I can QA-read it and remove my comments around here). ça va? PS: afterwards I might post another answer (if I know one ... what do you think?) Dec 8, 2015 at 18:23
