I help for a site in an old version of Joomla without backup!.

Can you tell me wich version of akeeba ( I have an old ones on myPC)  can I install for that?

Have a nice day

Check out the Compatibility page. You probably need version 4.7.7.

However, you should note that we have officially stopped supporting Joomla 2.5 since 2012. Moreover, that version is from 2017 — we simply updated the last version working on Joomla 2.5 with the last database engine which could conceivably run on Joomla 2.5. In those last nearly five years several things have changed. Don't expect that version to work with Dropbox (new API was released in the meantime) or with any location Amazon S3 launched after 2017 (they require S3 v4 signatures which in turn required code changes on our part).

The best use for that old version of Akeeba Backup is taking a backup of your site so you can start working on upgrading it to Joomla 4.
