Hi there,

I recently changed the host for my wordpress website and I was hoping to use Akeeba to restore everything, but when I try to activate the plugin I get this fatal error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare akeebabackupwp_boot() (previously declared in /home/httpd/vhosts/ in /home/httpd/vhosts/ on line 56

It might be an obvious thing for people who know what they are doing, but I am not there yet !

Thanks in advance for your help

Akeeba Staff

you installed the Core version side by side with the Pro one.
Please de-activate and uninstall the Core version, so you can enjoy Akeeba Backup Pro
