Whenever I try to do an automatic update of Akeeba for Wordpress I get the following error:
There was an error communicating with the update package extraction script restore.php. This usually indicates a permissions issue making this file unreadable to the web server or a server configuration (e.g. .htaccess file directives) issue blocking access to this file.
This is a pain but not really the issue. The issue is that if I download Akeeba for Wordpress and overwrite the plugin (via ftp) then this resets all of my config within Akeeba.
My question is; how can I do a non-destructive manual upgrade of Akeeba for Wordpress?
