I recently updated my Joomla installation and noticed that the installer created folder named 1new on the server. Folder contains two subfolders; tmp and logs. Logs folder contains two files joomla_update.php and error.php. Both files contains only some log information but error.php contains unsuccesfully login attempts too.

#<?php die('Forbidden.'); ?>

What is the meaning of that folder and those logs?


Are you sure this folder was created with the update?

What it looks to me is that your joomla is configured to have its tmp and logs directories inside this 1new folder, like so: 1new/logs & 1new/tmp.

So review your configuration and see what is the value of the tmp and logs path.

You can check it either from the global configuration in the backend, or directly in the configuration.php- in the last case look for the $log_path & $tmp_path variables.
