.xxx extension added to setup files

This has happened several times after upgrading 1.2.9 to 1.5.7. All files in /zp-core/setup/ have .xxx extension added to file name (class-setup.php.xxx). Requires uploading clean files and re-running upgrade to restore admin access. What's causing this?

    This is setup protection and occurs after setup has run. It does not require uploading of files: Please see here:

    Not sure what you mean exactly but logging in has nothing to do with the setup files being disabled actually.

    path to your installation/admin
    path to your installation/zp-core/admin.php

    Both links go to gallery front page, not login. Running Basic theme.

    path to your installation/admin

    If that doesn't work you either don't have the htaccess file in place or modrewrite is not working

    path to your installation/zp-core/admin.php

    This should lead to a login form. please review your error logs.

    There is no .htaccess in upgrade package /zenphoto-1.5.7/zp-core/. Found 'htaccess file version 1.2.8.0' I had saved a month ago, no idea from where. Uploaded to /zp-core, now /zp-core/admin.php works.

    There should be a htaccess template file within zp-core which setup would use to create the actual root .htaccess file from. And it is for sure there:
    https://github.com/zenphoto/zenphoto/blob/master/zp-core/htaccess

    If this for some reason didn't happen - sometimes setup failes to recognice that modrewrite is active as there is not really secure way to check that - you can just copy it to root and rename it. Change the rewrite base to your install's and/or re-run setup.

    Thte htacces from 1.2.8.0 is outdated, current version is 1.4.12.

    Ok, I've copied /zp-core/htaccess from upgrade package to /zp-core/.htaccess. There already was a /zp-core/htaccess, looks like upgrader copied it without renaming it. I upgraded directly from 1.2.9 to 1.5.7, there were a lot of errors but gallery seems to be working ok. Are there any problems I should look out for?

    You misunderstood. The .htaccess file must be in the root of your install. The backend does not use rewritten urls.

    It was already in /photo root, it's now in /photo and /photo/zp-core. I get 404 at /photo/admin, login at /photo/zp-core/admin.php. Login is successful, so we're good. Thanks.

    There should be no .htaccess in photo/zp-core as the backend does not use modrewrite itself. Except the /admin URL which is handled internally and not directly via a htaccess file.
