Joomla upgrade
Yesterday we received a message regarding the upgrade of Joomla by Dreamhost. It was installed a long time ago by someone else and is not being used. Problem is now our site is not viewable.
This shows instead of the site:
PLEASE REMEMBER TO COMPLETELY
REMOVE THE INSTALLATION DIRECTORY.
You will not be able to proceed beyond this point until the installation directory has been removed. This is a security feature of Joomla!.
Click here when the directory has been removed.
Joomla! is free software released under the GNU/GPL v2.0 License.

No matter how many times the permissions are changed on the files & folders in the Installation folder - cannot delete or rename or move them.

How can it just go back the way it was?

RE: Joomla upgrade
I'm having the same issue. I just changed to auto upgrade and it installed 1.5.25 but the new domain folder is root root 644 as are most of the files and folders inside thus I can't delete the installation folder.

Thanks for any help,
David

RE: Joomla upgrade
My issue was resolved by Edgar C. Apparently the install's permissions got stuck on root during the upgrade. ??

RE: Joomla upgrade
Sounds about right. Guess I have to submit a support ticket.

RE: Joomla upgrade
I'm having this problem as well. After the automatic upgrade of Joomla by Dreamhost, can't delete the installation directory in FileZilla no matter what I tried to do (rename, change permission, go up one directory and change all permission within...nothing works). This is pretty frustrating.

RE: Joomla upgrade
I have the same problem with this today. How do I turn off "auto-update"? I do not want my sites to be updated automatically. I ended up just going back to the old file and using it. It works fine. But I want to delete the one that was installed today.

To turn off auto-update: Go to the web Panel. On the top left is your tool box. Click "One-Click Installes". Then click "Manage Installed Applications. Select your domain. Then under Upgrade action, click edit. Select "no action.

It's great that you could go back to the old file. I can't even replace the new directory with my old directory. No permission.

Yes, I did that to turn off the auto update as well. The "Manage Installed Applications" link is kind of hard to see (it kind of blends in with the page and doesn't stand out). I can't believe auto-update was on by default (I can't remember selecting this when I install). Now my site is down and stuck at the "delete your installation directory warning".

RE: Joomla upgrade
Same problem here. However, I would like to keep auto update on.

Do I need to submit a support ticket every time the auto update does its thing?

Has anyone found a solution other than submitting a help ticket?
