Joomla Discover is asking for FTP Login Details

by Gillian   Last Updated November 08, 2018 13:10 PM

I am working Joomla! 3.9 website and wanted to check that all extensions etc were installed correctly. I used the Joomla Extensions > Manage > Discover option. Nothing was found but above the message was a request for Login details saying "For installing or uninstalling Extensions, Joomla will most likely need your FTP account details. Please enter them in the form fields below".

Why? Has the site been hacked? I've never needed to use FTP details for installing extensions.

p.s. Can someone with a 50 reputation add the tag Joomla-3.9?
