Something is adding 1. before 3 root files

Hi, I have a problem something is disabling my site version 3.9.1, site is without any nonjoomla extension or plugin.

I found that something renames these files :
configuration.php
error.php
index.php

to
1.configuration.php
1.error.php
1.index.php

FTP hosting is secured by only one IP address to login, admin also.

Do you have any advise?

I just found out , that I had wrongly setup $log_path

Wrongly was there "www", right is "logs".
public $log_path = '/mnt/data/...../www';

Is possibility, that was the case of renaming? Because when I upgraded Joomla, files in logs folder rename same with prefix 1.

Is it still working for you ? We have this problem for a couple of months now and it's the first time I found out someone with the same problem.

No, after I had corrected $log_path in configuration.php, everything goes well.

Correct $log_path in configuration.php to reflect the proper log path

I think it's unlikely that your log path is changing file names. If it was I would expect the path to have the number 1 in it somewhere. When we see odd file names on a server it usually means the site was hacked.

That is incorrect. I have explained the reason. Don't post conclusions if you are not aware of what is happening
