Akeeba Backup for Joomla! 9.2.5 Stable

Released on: 2022-06-14 00:15 CDT

What's new

Restoration: Warn about missing mysqli / PDO MySQL and REFUSE to proceed. The restoration script will now detect if you are missing all PHP extensions to access your database server compatible with your CMS. Instead of just displaying a message in the first page which people have been routinely ignoring it will also display a full page error when you try to proceed into the database restoration, explaining the problem, how to solve it and refusing to proceed any further.

Bug fixes and minor improvements. Please take a look at the CHANGELOG below.

Joomla 4 only

Akeeba Backup version 9 will only run on Joomla 4. If you still have a Joomla 3 site, don't worry! Akeeba Backup 8 will still be maintained and receive support from the release of Joomla 3.10 on August 17th, 2021 up to August 17th, 2023. Do note that Akeeba Backup 8 will no longer receive major new features. These will only be implemented on Akeeba Backup 9.

Also note that starting August 17th, 2021 we no longer support Akeeba Backup 8 on Joomla except for the use case of upgrading from Joomla 3 and with the sole intent of updating it to Akeeba Backup 9.
