WP-DB-Backup: two versions installed after plugin upgrade (4 posts)

    I was running version 2.2.2 and clicked 'upgrade automatically'. Now I have two version of the plugin installed, 2.2.2 and 2.2.3. Even though the latest version is installed, the 2.2.2 version is notifying me to upgrade. Is this expected?

    I have the plugin installed on several websites so I wanted to make sure everything is ok before I proceed.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    What happened is that back a couple of years ago it was more common for plugins to be installed right in the plugins directory, like

    plugins/wp-db-backup.php

    instead of what people do now:

    plugins/wp-db-backup/wp-db-backup.php

    The result is that when you upgrade from the former to the latter, the former doesn't get deleted because it's not in the expected wp-db-backup directory.

    You can safely delete it though.

    @Austin,

    This makes complete sense to me now.

    After I upgrade, I will delete version 2.2.2.

    Thanks!
