Joomla! version: 2.5.14
PHP version: n/a
MySQL version: n/a
Akeeba Backup version which took the backup: current Pro version
Kickstart version used to extract the backup: 3.7
Description of my issue:
I noticed these things while running a restore.
I "restored" from test.mysite.com to mysite.com (name of folder and name of URL). Dreamhost creates subdomains with the folder name matching, by default.
In Directories fine-tuning it didn't correctly switch the "Temporary directory" to the new location of \home\myname\test.mysite.com to \home\myname\mysite.com It left it at pointing to the backup location. I did read the restoration documentation steps. I'm mentioning it here because the other two directories in the "Directories fine-tuning" DID switch. I thought that was confusing.
Also, I noticed that the new log directory name ended as "log", where, in the archive, it was "logs", and the restore did create a "logs" directory. I'm not sure about why it did this. I didn't even have a "xx\log" folder in the "from" site. Maybe there was a left over misconfiguration. Quicker to mention it in case.
When doing the cleanup, it doesn't remove jquery.min.js or json2.min.js files. Now, I confess I didn't search the documentation for this one. Seems like they should be removed when other parts are cleaned up.
