Akeeba Backup for WordPress 2.0.4 Stable

Released on: Sunday, 11 December 2016 18:00

 

What's new

This version addresses known issues which could affect usability, site transfers and restoring backups under some uncommon conditions.

Furthermore, this version adds support for conducting FTP, FTPS and SFTP file transfers using the cURL module for PHP. This is the same module used by evey other post-processing engine we're using such as Amazon S3, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive and so on. That is to say, we already know it's rock solid and widely available, making it the best choice for conducting file transfers. The new file transfers over cURL are implemented in the Site Transfer Wizard and the new DirectFTP and DirectSFTP over cURL archivers. The Professional version of our software also implements that in the two new Upload to FTP / SFTP server over cURL post-processing engines.

Updating Akeeba Backup for WordPress to version 2.0.x

Due to changes in the packaging format and / or issues in the updater, you cannot update automatically from Akeeba Backup for WordPress versions 1.0 through 1.8.2 (inclusive) to version 1.9.0 and beyond. You will have to do that manually.

Heads up! You must NOT uninstall or deactivate the plugin before the update. Doing so may result in loss of your backup settings and / or your backup archives. Instead, here's what to do:

  • Download the ZIP file for Akeeba Backup for WordPress 2.0 and extract it locally. You will see an extracted folder named akeebabackupwp.
  • Upload the files from the extracted akeebabackupwp folder into your site's wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp folder, overwriting your existing files, using FTP or SFTP. Please note that the name of the folder on your site may be different than akeebabackupwp, e.g. akeebabackupwpcore, akeebabackupwp (1) or something similar. It depends on how you installed the plugin.
  • Log in to WordPress' wp-admin and access Akeeba Backup for WordPress to automatically complete the update process. There is no message when the process completes. You just see the main page of Akeeba Backup for WordPress (this means the update succeeded).

You will only need to do this once, upgrading to version 1.9 or later for the first time.

PHP 5.3.3 or later or PHP 7 is required

Akeeba Solo and Akeeba Backup for WordPress 1.9 are compatible with PHP 5.3.04 and later versions, including 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 and the newest version of PHP, 7.0. We'd like to remind you that most third party software which can be backed up by our software do not support PHP 7 yet. As a result we can't guarantee a trouble-free restoration or tha the restored site will work on PHP 7 as this depends entirely on the software powering your site.
