I am working on an old Drupal website. I disabled the Electric Embers subscribe module - to get rid of a newsletter subscription option to a dead list. Previously my website was in off-line mode, but otherwise worked. Now the website looks like pure text or code.
I checked the database and the ee-subscribe module is still enabled.
Unfortunately I didn't make a backup before turning off this module. However, I've never seen turning off a module cause so much havoc.
I currently cannot use my admin log in or do anything directly through drupal.
When does Drupal 5 change the filename field in the system table? The problem occurs when it sets the "filename" field to "modulename.info" (or .install or .js) for 10-20 modules. I can manually set it to "modulename.module" but the fix only lasts an hour or so.
I don't think that cron is running as there are no cron jobs scheduled and I do not use poormanscron. However I don't know how to test this.
