No backup is made due to Failure, so no LOG file excist.


In AkeebaBackup.php line 232:                                                                 

  Failed opening required '/home/wwwdarqa/domains/ 

  istrator/components/com_akeeba/BackupEngine/Factory.php' (include_path='.:/ 




Is this a CRON job problem (settings) or Akeeba Backup PHP error?




Akeeba Staff

You have leftovers from Akeeba Backup 8.

Delete the folder plugins/console/akeebabackup.

Install Akeeba Backup 9's ZIP file twice in a row, without uninstalling it before or in between.
