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.
