I have Akeeba Pro. I am trying to do the automatic upgrade & I get the error

You have to specify your username and password in the component's parameters for the update to work!

I can't figure out where to enter my Akeebabackup,.com username & password. I have looked through all the components parameters & can't figure out where to enter them.

Thanks for your help with this.

I figured it out.

I had to go to the components parameters. I just hadn't noticed the little Parameters button on the top right hand side of the Akeeba component dashboard.
