Hello everybody,
is it still possible for pro-users to automatically initialize backups per cronjob with the new version 7?
Regards, Uli

The CRON capabilities have been removed from the Core version of Akeeba Backup. They were really never intended to be in this version.

The full CRON capabilities remain in the Pro version of the software.

The only thing removed from the Pro version was one of the cloud storage providers that was recently added. They had a really bad implementation of the authentication process. The issue has been reported to the provider by a mutual user. If they can fix the problem, it may return. As it stands right this minute, the issue can't be worked around on our end.
