Akeeba Staff

you're almost done, you're not calling PHP executable. It should be something like this:
/path/to/php /home/xxxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/app/cli/backup.php --profile=2

You'll have to change the string /path/to/php with the actual path to your PHP executable, this is something your host or sysadmin should be able to tell you.
