Installation folder not deleted

Post by callistar » Thu Jan 07, 2021 1:27 pm

Dear friends,

We have several sites with Joomla installed, all of them can be updated automatically by Plesk except one!

The installation folder cannot be deleted automatically so if we choose auto update on Plesk appears the last installation page with message for deleting the folder...

Does anyone know any solution about?

Recommend only install from https://downloads.joomla.org/
And
Only update via Components >>> Joomla update

OK, I agree the correct way is to update manually but... why to all other sites is working the auto update by PLesk and not to this one...?

PS. If you have tens of Joomla sites... manually?

The update packages does not contain any installation folder.
