configuration.php file only partially updated

After completing a clone, I noticed that the database and live site details are updated, but the $tmp_path and $log_path variables still use the values from the old server.

Surely these should be updated by the script, or is it not possible for the script to identify what these values should be?

Hi there! Unfortunately the script can't automatically update those variables as they mostly depend on how the user configures them, while we noticed some users use the Joomla root path+ tmp/ or logs/ , others use different value which point to different locations on the server

Those variables need to be adjusted after each move, or if you simply initiate them to "logs" and "tmp" they will point by default to the Joomla root folder structure automatically after each move
