RE: [opensource-91] Alert - Use Caution When Upgrading Akeeba Backup

From: Joe R.
Sent on: Tuesday, March 6, 2012 1:38 PM

Folks,

 

Dealt with this issue this morning.  The problem is that Akeeba will not run with the System – Legacy plugin enabled.  The following is there response:

 

Akeeba Backup 3.4.0 is not compatible with the "System - Legacy" plugin shipped with Joomla! 1.5. In order to regain access to the back-end of your site, please delete the plugins/system/srp.php file and the administrator/modules/mod_akadmin directory from your site's back-end. At this point, you have two choices:
a. Go to Extensions, Manage Plugins, find the "System - Legacy" plugin and unpublish it. This plugin is only required when you are using extremely outdated software which was initially compatible with Joomla! 1.0. If you are not using such software, just disable the plugin.
b. If you are using such outdated software (and you can't update them), do not disable the plugin. Instead, uninstall Akeeba Backup 3.4.0 and install an earlier version, e.g. 3.2.7. IMPORTANT: Older Akeeba Backup versions are NOT supported and you will have to downgrade at your own risk

 

Hope this helps!

Joe Rebele

Also, you may want to try a two step upgrade process ... upgrade to[masked] first (https://www.akeebabackup.com/download/akeeba-backup.html) and then upgrade to the latest 3.4.

I upgraded a Joomla[masked] site from Akeeba[masked] to 3.4 using Akeeba's built-in upgrade process just now without issue.  Hopefully your upgrade will go smoother this go around!  Otherwise it may be something specific to your Joomla environment.

It's a Joomla[masked] site.  I was upgrading from Akeeba 3.3.6 to 3.4 using the built-in upgrader.  Afterwards I could log into the site, but instead of seeing the admin console, I was just getting a server error.

I renamed the administrator/modules/mod_akadmin directory and I could then get to the console.

I uninstalled akeeba backup and everything seems fine.

I reinstalled Akeeba 3.3.6 and I'm backing up the site now.

Thanks,
Rick

Hi Everyone,

This is a knee jerk reaction, but I just tried to upgrade to Akeeba Backup 3.4 and it caused the admin section of my site to crash.  I wanted to warn anyone else before they have to deal with the same hassles as I do.

Front end still looks good, but the back end is throwing a server error.
