I am working
Joomla! 3.9 website and wanted to check that all extensions etc were installed correctly. I used the Joomla
Extensions > Manage > Discover option. Nothing was found but above the message was a request for Login details saying
"For installing or uninstalling Extensions, Joomla will most likely need your FTP account details. Please enter them in the form fields below".
Why? Has the site been hacked? I've never needed to use FTP details for installing extensions.
p.s. Can someone with a 50 reputation add the tag
