You are using a server with PHP 5.3, outputting errors to the browser and reporting Strict Standards warnings. This combination does not allow Joomla! and its extensions to run properly. Most likely, you are using a WAMPServer, XAMPP or similar environment released after January 2011. You have the following options:

  1. Edit your php.ini file and change the following lines:


    and restart your server. Do note that some Joomla! extensions will still not work.

  2. Install Zend Server CE with PHP 5.2, XAMPP 1.6.4 or any other server environment with PHP 5.2 (strongly recommended)

If you choose to ignore this warning and continue, you will be on your own. Do not ask for support. All the post-restoration problems you will experience are not Akeeba Backup's fault and you have been strongly warned.
