ANGIE for Joomla: reset session and cache options in Site Setup. When transferring a site to a new server your existing session and cache settings may not be valid. For example, if you were using a Redis or Memcached server which is not available on the new server. This would make it impossible to log into your restored site. The Site Setup page now gives you a toggle which can reset Joomla's session and cache settings to their default values.
Support for ShowOn to conditionally show options in the Configuration page. Options whose availability depends on the setting of another option will now remain hidden by default and re-appear when the conditions to display them are met. For example, when setting up Amazon S3 you will not be shown the Region selection if you choose to use v2 signatures which do not use the Region.
Bug fixes and minor improvements. Please take a look at the CHANGELOG below.
Do not use Akeeba Backup 8 to take backups of Joomla 4 sites. Akeeba Backup 8 is minimally compatible with Joomla 4, as in: it won't break your site when you upgrade from Joomla 3.10 to Joomla 4. The minimal compatibility is there only for the purpose of facilitating the upgrade process from 3.10 to 4.x. You cannot even install Akeeba Backup 8 on Joomla 4.1 and later — this is deliberate, there's no need for you to do that. Once you install Joomla 4 you MUST install Akeeba Backup 9 and complete the migration process to it, then uninstall Akeeba Backup 8 per the messages which will be displayed on Akeeba Backup's Control Panel page. Please note that we do not provide any support for taking or restoring backups of Joomla 4 sites with Akeeba Backup 8 after February 17th, 2022.
Please consult our Compatibility page. It explains our version support policy and lists which versions of our software are compatible with which versions of Joomla and PHP.
