I have Joomla 3.7.4 that runs in subdirectory /html/joomla374 of my webspace. Before upgrading to Joomla 3.7.5 I want to restore a recent backup file I created using latest Akeeba Backup extension. This backup shall be restored in subdirectory html/joomla375.
What I did so far:
- Upload the jpa file to the joomla375 subdirectory
- Upload kickstart.php
- Create a new database to be used for Joomla running in joomla375 directory
My concerns: When I execute .../joomla375/kickstart.php and choose to write files directly, where will it write the files to? To the root folder (i.e. html) or to the directory where the backup file resides (i.e. /html/joomla375)?
In other words: Will extracting the backup file in /html/joomla375 somehow affect my running Joomla in /html/joomla374?
