Wordpress Admin Tools URL Redirection

When using a page anchor # url for the Existing URL, the redirection creates a double URL.

For example;
For Existing URL: about/#history
Using the New URL: about/history
Redirects to: about/#history#history

What is the solution to prevent this?
I have tried all of the Keep URL Parameters; Override all; None.

There is indeed a bug when the redirection target includes a fragment. Can you please try using the latest (as of this writing) dev release instead? I have added a fix for that issue. This will be included in version 1.2.0 scheduled for next week.

Hi,
I get an Destination folder already exists. .../wp-content/plugins/admintoolswp/

Plugin installation failed.

What is the best way to install without loosing my current settings with the existing install?

This is on a clients live site.

Thanks,

Unlike Joomla, WordPress is incapable of updating / re-installing a plugin by uploading a ZIP file. You have to do it like it's the early 2000s all over again: FTP. See the manual update method under https://www.akeebabackup.com/documentation/atwp/installing.html#updating

I spotted a typo in that documentation page. The folder is admintoolswp, not akeebabackupwp. Other than that it's accurate.
