Hello,

simply get inside component options and delete the Download ID. It's only required for Pro versions, Core versions do not need any Download ID for updates.

We put that message for users that thought that the Download ID acts as a "License key", unlocking Pro features.

After looking again at your screenshot, I realized you're talking about Akeeba Backup for WordPress, sorry for the confusion.

In that case, things are a bit tricky: the page for Download ID editing is available only in the Pro version, so you would have to upgrade to Pro, remove the Download ID and then downgrade to Core again.

On the other hand, you can simply ignore the warning: it won't affect any feature of Akeeba Backup, it's just a bit annoying.

Thanx. Why do Akeeba show there is an update with the same version number as installed? (see screeenshot above )

How can i download Akeeba pro version without a subscription? (I want to remove the download key)

Hello,

you will have to navigate inside your database and search for the option akeebabackupwp_config, look inside it and search for the string update_dlid and blank out its value.

What does "blank out its value" mean? Replace it it with a zereo?

or remove it completly?

"confwiz_upgrade": 1,
"update_dlid": "my-downlad-id-is-replaced-with txt- in-this-post",
"show_howtorestoremodal": 0

What should it look like?

Replace it with an empty string:

"update_dlid": ""
