Refusing to run ionic cordova plugin inside a Capacitor project

I have a cordova app which I recently updated. Now when I try and add plugins I get this message. Ionic info output is

What has gone wrong?

I’m experiencing the same problem, did you find any solution?

Do you have a capacitor.config.json file in your project directory? If so, remove it.

Try this command

ionic integrations disable capacitor


tnk u so much, this aswer helped me a lot

Happened to me when I used the install script under capacitor tab (which is now the default tab) to install a plugin. I added the capacitor.config.json file and added capacitor inside of the ionic.config.json file.

Running the code below should fix it
ionic integrations disable capacitor
Or simply delete the capacitor.config file in the root of the project and the ‘capacitor’ entry in ionic.config.json under integrations
