Akeeba Backup for WordPress

Akeeba Backup for WordPress

version 1.3.4 Stable

Released on: Tuesday, 23 June 2015 08:46

Release Notes

PHP 5.3 or later or PHP 7 is required

This version requires PHP 5.3.4 or later (e.g. 5.3.29 which is twenty five versions newer than PHP 5.3.4), 5.4, 5.5 or 5.6 or 7.0. Please note that PHP 5.3 is obsolete since August 2014 and we're going to stop supporting it without warning in future versions of our software. We'd like to remind you that most third party software which can be backed up by our software do not support PHP 7. As a result we can't guarantee the trouble-free operation of the restoration procedure if you are using PHP 7. Also keep in mind that PHP 7 is currently in pre-release stage and it's not a good idea using it in production environments anyway.

Note: there is no such thing as PHP 6. PHP versions jumped from 5.6 to 7.0. Why? Well, it's a long story. TL;DR: It doesn't have to make sense, just accept it.


Bug fixes

  • [HIGH] Restoring on MySQL would be impossible unless you used the MySQL PDO driver
  • [LOW] Desktop notifications for backup resume showed "%d" instead of the time to wait before resume
  • [LOW] Push notifications should not be enabled by default
  • [MEDIUM] Dropbox integration would not work under many PHP 5.5 and 5.6 servers due to a PHP issue. Workaround applied.

New features

  • Support utf8mb4 in CRON jobs

Miscellaneous changes

  • ANGIE: Improve memory efficiency of the database engine
  • Switching the default log level to All Information and Debug

Our Core versions are provided free of charge,
but they only scratch the surface of what's possible.
