I have update a site from J3 to J4 ans´d installed akeeba backup 9.x.
In the list of plugins I find an entry PLG_CONSOLE_AKEEBABACKUP with no more information.

Is this an old entry and can be removed?


Akeeba Staff

This is a database record without any corresponding files, created in error by Joomla 3 (this plugin type is only for Joomla 4, and Joomla 3 completely failed to figure out what to do with it; yeah, that was a bug / unintended effect in Joomla 3). There is no way to remove it except by editing the database and removing the record for it from the #__extensions table.
