This version addresses known issues which could affect usability, site transfers and restoring backups taken on sites running Joomla 3.6.3 or later.
We only support Joomla! 3.4 or later, including 3.5. We strongly advise you to run Joomla! 3.6.4 or later for security reasons. Older versions of Joomla! have known major security issues which are being actively exploited to hack sites. Our team has contributed fixes and / or expert opinion for all of these security issues, helping make Joomla! safe and secure.
Support for PHP 5.3 has been discontinued. PHP 5.3 has been end of life since August 2014 and widely considered a security risk, unfit for production sites. Our software requries PHP 5.4 or later and is compatible with PHP 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 and 7.x. We strongly recommend using PHP 5.6 or 7.x.
We'd like to remind you that Joomla! 3.4 does NOT support PHP 7. PHP 7 is only supported by Joomla! 3.5.0 and later versions. Akeeba Backup will work perfectly fine (and very fast!) on a Joomla! 3.5 or later site running on PHP 7.
Good software is worth nothing without outstanding documentation.It's one of the three core mantras of our creed. We adhere to this rule ever since the early days of the 1.0.4 release, all the way back in 2007. This package contains the Akeeba Backup User's Guide in PDF format for off-line reading. It covers both the Akeeba Backup Core (free) and Akeeba Backup Professional (subscription-based) editions of our Joomla!™ component.
Installation package for Akeeba Backup Core, the free of charge version of Akeeba Backup without any of the advanced features.
Important! Akeeba Backup REQUIRES PHP 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 or 7.0. If your site is still running on an older PHP version, you are advised to upgrade immediately.
