Hi great team!
I have a strange thing with one site.
When I want to update WP I get redirected to Akeeba back-up.
It is a test site so not so excited, but still. Would like to find a solution because I use that site myself.

I have disabled all plug-ins (also Akeeba) but still same problem.

So when I click on Update WP on this link:
http://www.websitename.nl/wordpress07/wp-admin/update-core.php


I get redirected to:

http://www.websitename.nl/wordpress07/wp-admin/admin.php?page=akeebabackupwp/akeebabackupwp.php&view=backup&autostart=1&backuponupdate=1&profile=1&_wpnonce=89f17f9feb&_wpaction=upgrade-core&returnurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.websitename.nl%2Fwordpress07%2Fwp-admin%2Fupdate-core.php%3Faction%3Ddo-core-upgrade%26akeeba_autoupdate_ignore%3D1&returnform=eyJfd3Bub25jZSI6Ijg5ZjE3ZjlmZWIiLCJfd3BfaHR0cF9yZWZlcmVyIjoiXC93b3JkcHJlc3MwN1wvd3AtYWRtaW5cL3VwZGF0ZS1jb3JlLnBocCIsInVwZ3JhZGUiOjEsInZlcnNpb24iOiI1LjIuMiIsImxvY2FsZSI6Im5sX05MIn0=

There is a feature which lets you take a backup of your site before running a core (WordPress) update. The update resumes after the backup is complete.

If you do not want that to happen go to Akeeba Backup, System Configuration, click on the Backup on Update tab and disable this feature by setting “Backup on manual WordPress update” to No.
