Error after upgrading from 2.3.4 to 2.8.4

Had some database errors when I first logged in but did not note them as had option to "continue anyway".

Anyway seems to work okay apart from below error displaying at top of every page on the live front end site pages, running just 2 add ons, backup and forms.

"Warning: include(/home/tepcoltd/public_html/admin/addons/apps/perch_backup/runtime.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/tepcoltd/public_html/admin/core/inc/apps.php on line 22"

However redownloaded the backup app just to be sure and there is no runtime.php in the folder!

So why is it asking for it? If I disabled the app it goes away, have copied both it and the core folder twice no difference.

Remove perch_backup from your apps.php file - it shouldn't be there.

Thanks, I managed to find your answer elsewhere searching using different keywords. Out of interest why do some of my other sites not display this error even though they also had this in the apps.php file? Is it because there is a setting in the server to not display errors?

Yes, that's likely it.

The Backup app is admin-only - it doesn't do anything on the pages of your website, so it doesn't have a runtime file.

Okay at least I know now! Thanks.
