Restoring a Joomla Site using Akeeba Backup


I just created a one-step Joomla droplet.

I have an Akeeba Backup which I uploaded using FileZilla.

As soon as it tries to restore the site, it throws the following error: AN ERROR OCCURRED Could not open /var/www/html/installation/README.html for writing.

Also, once all the files are written, I will need to run through the standard Joomla install. How do I find out what are the database name & credentials I need to enter during that phase?

To use SFTP in Akeeba Kickstart PHP SSH2 needed.

apt-get install libssh2-php
php -m | grep ssh2

Can we get some help with this? I’m also having the issue of not knowing my database credentials. I used the joomla prebuilt site.

Are you still having difficulty with this?
