Problem Restoring Akeeba Backup Of Joomla Site
I'm trying to test out the backup and restore process for a sample Joomla site to make sure I understand how to do it if I need to. I installed a Joomla 3.4.8 system, installed Akeeba, created the backup, ftp'd the backup to my local computer (binary), moved that file to the server under ./public_html. I changed the permissions on the file (777, just to be sure). I downloaded the latest kickstart.php from Akeeba's web site. I moved that file to the same directory as the backup. I have tried changing and not changing permissions on the php file, both with the same result. When I navigate to my site address in my browser http://www.site-name.com/kickstart.php, The page displays as expected, but the archive file is not available for selection. Based on everything I've seen, all solutions point to permission issues. I have tried opening up ./public_html, as well as freeing up the archive file and the php file. No combination I've tried has resulted in getting beyond the message " No archives detected. Click here for troubleshooting instructions. " Any help is appreciated. I have not found any existing support documentation that addresses this issue for inmotion.
