Joomla! version

Akeeba Backup version



I just upgrade Joomla from 4.0.6 to 4.1 and before to proceed, Akeeba backup failed to upload to OVH.

I changed the credential at OVH to test and same problem.

It could be a problem from OVH, but right after this kind of major upgrade (J4.1) I doubt it is.

Anyway, here is the message I got from the logs. May be it could help you, if the problem is on your side.

INFO |20220215 12:08:44|Beginning post processing file <root>akeeba-backups/

 Thanks !

The Joomla version has nothing to do with backup post-processing issues. The same backup engine code runs on Joomla 3, Joomla 4, WordPress AND standalone. The last time our backup engine depended on the Joomla version installed was early 2007, in JoomlaPack 1.2. In version 3 it was renamed to Akeeba Backup and we are now in version 9. So, no, it’s not what you think it is.

The message you got says that the credentials are incorrect. If you are sure the credentials are correct it’s a random issue in OVH's side.

Thanks Nicholas,

I appreciate your fast support. I'll check credentials again and ask if there is a problem from OVH.

You can close that ticket.
