Other Information

Akeeba Backup doesn´t work. It was OK, but after updating PHP the message mentioned above is shown. Is any idea to fix it?(other information and details relevant to your question)


We highly discourage the use of backup plugins here as it’s easy for them to corrupt the backup, and they create a bunch of load on the server that is known to lead to suspensions.


Thanks for recommendation. I uninstalled Akeeba Backup. Best regards.
