User access levels for ne group not showing Joomla Update

Post by WADAEC » Sat Nov 09, 2019 8:11 am

Hi there

I have just set up a new user group for a client and I am allowing access to certain elements that they need.

I have gone to Components > Joomla Updates > Options

I have done this to allow the client to run updates BUT permissions is no longer showing, so HOW do we allow the client to run updates now without letting them have full access to everything on the site?

We are only doing this as she is new to Joomla and we don't want to confuse her we items she does not need.

Help please :)

If they have access to the Joomla update component they can upload a file to allow them full access to the server. I think that's why only super admin is allowed access to it.
