What is a consultant? PDF Print Email
Tuesday, 09 May 2017 06:12

A consultant is an person who provides professional or expert advice in a particular field of science or business to either an organisation or individual. As there is no legal protection given to the job title 'consultant', in theory, anyone can on a day wake up and decide to adopt the consultant title. Despite the broad definition that can be subsumed under the term consultant, there are in essence three characteristics that distinguish a consultant from other professions.
Firstly, a consultant provides expertise that a client lacks or support that a client is unable to fulfill. In return for their professional services, the consultant charges a fee. Secondly, a consultant operates independently from the client, implying that, from the respective consultant, there is no conflict of interests between the client's issue and the services. Thirdly, a consultant operates in a professional manner, which ranges from having the right qualifications to ensuring high quality service delivery and a solid internal operation.

Why do clients hire consultants?

One of the defining features of a consultant suggests that clients hire consultants because they possess a knowledge advantage. In the overlarge majority of cases this is the main reason; a client hires a consulting firm to provide expert advice that ultimately (should) lead to the resolution of an issue within the client's organisation. There are however more reasons why consultants are hired:

  • consultants are independent and provide an objective view on dilemma's and solutions
  • external consultants are less susceptible to internal politics and/or sensitive situations
  • hiring consultants may in certain areas be cheaper than retaining the expertise in-house
  • when firms find themselves short in capacity for projects/positions consultants can backfill
  • consultants can easier do the 'dirty work', i.e. take the decisions no one internally wants to make

Where do consultants work?

Consultants can work at a consultancy firm, operate as independent consultant (freelance), or else work as consultant within the company they work for (‘internal consultant’).

Blank Page on Joomla Login PDF Print Email
Friday, 20 July 2012 13:29

One of Joomla’s interesting (and common) problems is when a user logs in to Joomla’s administrator’s control panel only to be greeted by a blank page instead of seeing Joomla’s control panel. The blank page doesn’t have any code in it, at all, not even the <html> and the <body> tags. So what’s going on?

This means that there is an error on the page. In fact, when you have a blank page after you login to Joomla, 99% of the times Apache will return a 500 Internal Server Error. But where did that error come from, and, more importantly, what caused it?

The error results from a PHP error, but you don’t see what the error is because Joomla, by default, and for security reasons, hides all the PHP errors from the outside world.

Now where did the error come from? In most of the cases we have encountered so far, the error comes from PHP trying to include a plugin that no longer exists in the filesystem. Here’s an example that we encountered today:

Warning: require_once(/home/yourwebsite/public_html/components/com_joomfish/helpers/defines.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/yourwebsite/public_html/administrator/modules/mod_translate/mod_translate.php on line 15

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/yourwebsite/public_html/components/com_joomfish/helpers/defines.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/yourwebsite/public_html/administrator/modules/mod_translate/mod_translate.php on line 15

We were able to see the error above (instead of the blank page) because we forced PHP error reporting in /public_html/administrator/index.php using:

ini_set('display_errors', '1');

Now what caused this error? Regrettably, we have to say that it was you, but without knowing, here’s how:

- You installed an extension (in the above case Joomfish).
- It didn’t work for your, you didn’t like it, or it caused you problems.
- Instead of uninstalling the extension from Joomla’s control panel, you deleted all the physical folders related to the extension on the file system.
- Since the extension was not uninstalled properly, then it is still considered, in the eyes of Joomla, as active.
- Joomla tries to load the extension (usually extensions that cause these problems are plugins) and fails.
- PHP reports an error and you will see the blank page.

How do we fix the error?

We cleanup the filesystem, we cleanup the database, basically we remove everything that has anything to do with the problematic extension.

This job takes an hour, for a total cost of $75 according to the our fee structure.
