Credits: Video Training produced by Brian Teeman

Transcript of this course

If you've made the decision to upgrade your existing Akeeba Backup Core to Akeeba Backup Professional, the installation process is fairly simple.

Once you've purchased your subscription to Akeeba Backup Professional, log in at the akeebabackup.com web site.

Once you've logged in, click on downloads.

Here, if we scroll down, you can find a Download link to Akeeba Backup Professional. Download that to your own computer, and when that's completed go to your web site and install it just like any other extension, without uninstalling your existing Akeeba Backup Core.

So go to Extensions, Manage, install.

Choose the file that you have just downloaded and click on Open.

When the installation is completed you will recieve a success message and the following welcome screen.

Go to the Components menu and select Akeeba Backup. Right at the top we have a message about entering our Download ID.

This is required for updates to the program, so let's go ahead and complete that.

Return to the akeebackup.com web site and make sure that you are logged in. Select My Subscriptiosn from the menu.

If you now scroll down, you will see your Download ID. Simply select and copy it.

Return to your web site and paste it in, and click on Apply download id.

We can see that the message has now disappeared and we have completed the upgrade to Akeeba Backup Professional.
