Release Notes

Release highlights

IMPORTANT! Behaviour change. All remote backup features (front-end URL, JSON API) will be automatically disabled if you are using a Secret Word that's not strong enough. This is done to protect your against brute forcing of the Secret Word which could allow attackers to take and download backups of your sites. Please read our release announcement for more information.

Text log in ALICE, the log analyzer. You can paste that text when you are requesting support to help us help you more efficiently.

Automatically run ALICE if an error occurs (only applies to backups taken from the interactive web interface).

Added support for Magento 2 and Drupal 8 (Akeeba Solo only).

Support for Amazon S3's Standard- Infrequent Access storage type (Professional versions only)

More stable Site Transfer Wizard thanks to improved transfer chunk size calculations

Security update (very low importance issue). Someone who already knows your Secret Word can store XSS in the database if the remote backup is enabled and you're not using the security enhanced .htaccess file (discovered by NCC Group). Low importance because this security issue requires the attacker to already know your Secret Word. However, if they have it they can already take and download backups of your site, exposing you to much higher and immediate risk. Therefore we consider it a low importance issue: it requires your site to essentially be already compromised.

Core and Professional versions

Now all of our backup software (Akeeba Backup for Joomla! and WordPress, as well as Akeeba Solo) come in two editions: Core and Professional. The Core version is provided free of charge to everybody WITHOUT having to subscribe, register or login and contains roughly 80% of the features. The Professional version is only available to paid subscribers –depending on their subscription level– and contains all the features. Support is only provided for the Professional version to eligible subscribers.

We strongly recommend installing and using the Core version before purchasing the Professional version. There are no refunds given on grounds of server compatibility, usability or software capabilities since these can be easily determined by installing the Core version on your server and/or reading our documentation, both available free of charge to everybody. If you have a question regarding our software please use the Contact Us link to submit a pre-sales request. Our staff will be most happy to respond to your requests!

PHP 5.3.3 or later or PHP 7 is required

Good news, folks! We listened to your feedback and restored compatibility with all versions of PHP from 5.3.04 onwards, including 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 and the just-released 7.0. We'd like to remind you that most third party software which can be backed up by our software do not necessarily support PHP 7. As a result we can't guarantee the trouble-free operation of the restoration procedure or the restored site if you are using PHP 7.

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.
