There seems to be a new step in the restoration process. It's asking me to remove the installation folder and I have no idea what that is. See

I took a look at the documentation and it does not include this step so I assume it hasn't yet been updated.

Can you explain what folder exactly is the installation folder, and if I'm being asked to simply select it and delete it?


Sorry. Somehow I ended up doing a joomla update.
