Description of my issue:

I transferred my website with akeeba/kickstart on an updated server (with php 7) of the same provider.

Everything seemed to work correctly, eccept the Akeeba Backup component (version 5.1.4 pro): as I tried to go to the component in Admin panel, I got a blank page stating a server error.

I unistalled and reinstalled Akeeba, updated to 6.3.2 pro. Now everything seems to work fine.

Was the error caused by a compatibility issue between Akeeba 5.1.4 and PHP 7.1.2? I could not understand this by reading the compatibility chart.

Thanks in advance for the reply

Akeeba Backup version (x.y.z format) 6.3.2 / 5.1.4 previously, giving error on new server

la versione 5.1 di Akeeba Backup è abbastanza vecchia (metà 2017), per cui è molto probabile che ci fossero delle incompatibilità con le ultime versioni di PHP, principalmente per le nuove keyword riservate introdotte dal linguaggio.
L'aggiornamento all'ultima versione disponibile è la soluzione corretta.
