Environment Information

Joomla! version
PHP version
Akeeba Backup version


Going through the Joomla 4 pre-check and file_fof40 is reported as needing upgrading. I have Professional 8.0.15 installed.


Should I ignore and then simply upgrade to the Joomla 4 version of Pro or what?

Akeeba Staff

Ignore that. Upgrade to Joomla 4. After you are on Joomla 4 go to Components, Akeeba Backup and follow the instructions you see on your screen to upgrade to Akeeba Backup 9 — can't miss them, they are in larger type at the top of the Akeeba Backup control panel page.
