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.
