Description of my issue:

MB language is default - No. There was a solution to this (old URL: https://www.akeebabackup.com/support/forum/support-for-akeeba-backup-core/mb-language-is-default-error/limit/50/offset/0.html) which worked fine but has now been removed. This changed the MB Language string query in the logic of the installation to a line of code. All I need is this code but I can't find it on the site.

Thanks

Hello John,

This change has been included in Akeeba Backup Installer's code since last April. If you are using any version of Akeeba Backup in the 3.3.x range you don't have to do anything else other than click on Next.

Hi Nicholas - this is restoring a back up of an old site so it's still coming up with the error. I've always had to change the langauage string in the logic file (for some reason our hosting company has the language set to Japanese) when restoring.

Not sure there's any way around this rather than using the old code snippet?

Cheers

John

Since I don't have that old code at hand, I can give you a simple workaround:
  • Backup a site, any site, with Akeeba Backup 3.3.13
  • Extract the backup locally, using Akeeba eXtract Wizard
  • Remove everything except the installation directory
  • Delete the installation/sql directory
  • Upload all the remaining files to the site you're trying to restore
  • DO NOT RUN KICKSTART AGAIN! Instead, visit http://www.example.com/installation where www.example.com is the new site's domain name
  • Carry on the restoration; after it's done, remove the installation directory
