I am using akeeba kickstart 5.3.0 to transfer a website from the path
https://joelmonzee.com/wp

to https://joelmonzee.com/

The first time I run the restoration process after the backup a script run to change the site's url

Unfortunately, i set it to https://joelmonzee.com/wp and it changed also the path https://joelmonzee.com/wp-content
As a result the site broke.

i run the site restoration process again and the script to change the site url never comes up again.

I would appreciate your help

Hello Serge,

I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do about it since moving the site requires replacing text in unstructured data. When you replace free text in unstructured data there is no way to include any safeguards against "special" cases.
The only suggestion I can give you, the next time you have to setup a test environment, avoid common patterns and choose something like "newsite".

Yes but why the script doesn't run the 2nd time?

The restoration script displays the replace step only if you are restoring to a different domain or path.
Since you are restoring on the same place, the replace step is skipped.
