Hello Nicholas,

I just restored my entire site and all was fine, except at the end when i got a notification to delete the installation directory ( see screenshot)

I tried to delete it manually via FTP but didn't find it

Anyway, i finished teh restoration process and all the site seems to be back percfectly

Can you explain that and tell me if one essential step was not completed and if any bug will occure afterwards ?

Thanks very much

If the installation folder is no longer there, there is no problem.

We do ask PHP to remove that folder. If PHP reports it couldn't even though it did you will get this message. This could happen, for example, if the system was very busy and did not immediately report success at PHP's request to delete the folder.

So, basically, all is good.
