I wasn't able to do a backup, when I try to access the plugin page I get the following error:
Service definition is not a Closure or invokable object.

Tried both 1.1.0 and 1.0.6 versions.

I'm stuck here and don't know what to do. Any help is welcome.

Best Regards

Your version of WordPress is very old. We have only tested our software with WP 3.8, 3.9 and 4.0. However, I am not sure whether this is an issue with your WP version. Is it possible to try installing Akeeba Backup on a WordPress 4.0 site on the same server and let me know if you get the same error message?
