Hello Support,

When we want to create a cronjob in Joomla 4.1 (as a new feature from joomla 4.1) we get an error when we make one for the back-up:

/administrator/components/com_scheduler/src/Model/TaskModel.php on line 689

See also screenshot.

Is this a Joomla issue, a hosting issue of a Akeeba back-up issue?

Hope you can help me.

Kind regards,




Akeeba Staff

This is a Joomla issue.

Please report it to the Joomla project by filing a new issue at New Issue · joomla/joomla-cms ( and include

@bembelimen @nikosdion

in the issue description to notify the Joomla 4.1 release lead and myself. I've been volunteering on fixing bugs in this feature as I'm the first (and possibly only?) developer who's been using this feature before it was even officially released :)
