Good morning,

I noticed that Akeeba Solo has an update from 7.8.0 to 7.8.1

Attempted to update it from within solo, but it won't let me as it thinks my PHP version is incorrect.

I've attached screenshots of the error and my PHP version (from Solo).

Everything works fine with 7.8.0, so no problems backing up.

Wait for a few hours and try again. There was a mistake in the update information, showing that it only supports up to 8.1 when it definitely supports (it's developed and tested on, actually!) PHP 8.2.

I ask you to wait for a few hours because the update information is cached for 6 hours and I updated the information on our server about 4 hours ago.
