I used the CLI from the following URL:

I call /cli/akeeba-backup.php as a cron. I now migrated to Joomla 4 and installed Akeeba Pro v9. There are no cli-files anymore. Does this method to automatically backup my Joomla still works with the old cli-files from older Akeeba versions?

Akeeba Staff

Akeeba Backup 9 β€” like all of our Joomla 4–only software β€” is now integrating directly with the Joomla CLI Application (cli/joomla.php). Make sure the plugin Console – Akeeba Backup is published. Then go to Components, Akeeba Backup, Schedule Automatic Backups to find out the new command line you need to use. There are links to the documentation there as well.
