Akeeba Backup for Joomla!

version 6.3.2 Stable

Released on: Friday, 07 December 2018 02:25

Release Notes

What's new

Added integration with Joomla! User Actions Log component. Joomla! 3.9 or later only. Akeeba Backup will log actions taken by the users in the backend of the site. Please note that automated or remote backups happen outside the context of a logged in user. Therefore they can not be logged in the User Actions Log. This feature is opt-in and requires enabling the optional "System - Akeeba Backup Log User Actions" plugin.

Bug fixes. We have addressed several issues. Please consult the CHANGELOG.

Joomla! 3.4 or later

We only support Joomla! 3.4 or later, including 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8 and 3.9. We strongly advise you to run the latest available version of Joomla! for security reasons. Older versions of Joomla! have known major security issues which are being actively exploited to hack sites.

HEADS UP! We only test our software with the last two released Joomla! version branches.

PHP 5.4.0 or any later 5.x/7.x version is required

Support for PHP 5.3 has been discontinued. PHP 5.3 has been end of life since August 2014 and widely considered a security risk, unfit for production sites. Our software requires PHP 5.4 or later and is compatible with PHP 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1 and 7.2. We currently offer preliminary support for PHP 7.3 which at the time of this writing is still in Release Candidate (testing) phase. We strongly recommend using PHP 7.2.

We'd like to remind you that Joomla! 3.4 does NOT support PHP 7. PHP 7 is only supported by Joomla! 3.5.0 and later versions.

HEADS UP! We will be dropping support for PHP 5.4, 5.5 and 7.0 starting January 2019. The software might run on these obsolete versions of PHP but we will be no longer officially supporting them. Any issues which can only be reproduced on non-supported PHP versions will not be treated as bugs and won't be fixed.


Bug fixes

  • [LOW] CLI Backups could fail if PHP cannot report the current working directory and you're using [SITEROOT] followed by a folder name which is not preceded by a slash (extremely rare)
  • [LOW] cannot finish restoring when you have two or more off-site folders
  • [MEDIUM] Fixed importing backup archives from Amazon S3

New features

  • Added integration with Joomla! User Actions Log component
