Akeeba Staff
I'm not sure why you closed your ticket? I assume you found the answer in the documentation. For what is worth, after the last step of the restoration you have to remove the directory named "installation" from your site.

If you're using Kickstart or Akeeba Backup's integrated restoration just click on the "Clean Up" button. Otherwise you can try clicking on the "delete the installation directory" link in Akeeba Backup Installer's last page or remove the installation directory yourself using your favourite FTP client (e.g. FileZilla).
