I am working on a website which is not on my own hosting, I had to upload Akeeba Pro for WordPress manually into the plugins folder.

I can activate it OK but when I click Akeeba Backup in the wp-admin login I get the following error:

ERROR! Could not load the backup engine; file does not exist. Technical information: Path to integration.php: /home/jasondahar/public_html/ Path to factory file: /home/jasondahar/public_html/

Is this something you can help with?

Many thanks,
