this error appears after installation of akeebabackup pro 3.0 b2 on joomla 1.5

could you please help me :)

You are using php4, Akeeba requires php5. Many commercial hosts offer both versions, you can switch between them at the host account level or through commands placed in your .htaccess file. You need to check with your host support to find out if this is possible and what the exact command would be.
