Hi,

I'm interested in the Akeeba Backup software but need it to work on PHP 5.3.28. Is there a version of the software that will run on 5.3.28? I've found this page https://www.akeebabackup.com/download/backup-wordpress/1-3-4.html but I can only get downloads for the documentation. Is it possible to get either the core or professional versions of this version of Akeeba Backup for Wordpress?

Thanks

Oops! Akeeba Backup 1.6.1 was meant to work with PHP 5.3.3 or later. It actually does but I forgot to modify two checks. Here's how to fix it until we release an updated version after New Year's:
  • Install Akeeba Backup (CORE or Professional) for WordPress
  • Edit the file wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/helpers/AkeebaBackupWP.php and change
    public static $minimumPHP = '5.4.0';
    with
    public static $minimumPHP = '5.3.3';
  • Edit the file wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/helpers/integration.php and change
    if (version_compare(PHP_VERSION, '5.4.0', 'lt'))
    with
    if (version_compare(PHP_VERSION, '5.3.3', 'lt'))


This will allow Akeeba Backup to work perfectly with PHP 5.3.28.
