Requirements

Akeeba Portable Tools will run on any Windows, Linux or macOS computer on which you can run .NET Framework 4.5 or later; or Mono Framework 4.5 or later. Practically this means:

  • Windows Vista or later
  • Linux support varies by distribution. We believe Ubuntu Linux 14.04 or later should be supported.
  • Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) or later, macOS Sierra or later

The applications should run out of the box on Windows 10 and later. On earlier versions of Windows you will need to install the .NET Framework 4.5 first.

On Linux and macOS you will need to install the Mono framework 4.5 or later. In case your Linux distributions offers separate package for Mono Framework and Gtk# please remember to install both.

GUI and CLI

Akeeba eXtract Wizard is the graphical wizard interface that you probably want to use. It's available in the following files:

  • AkeebaPortableToolsSetup.exe (Windows) - Just run the installer to install it
  • extract-wizard-linux-*.zip (Linux) - Extract to a folder and run the ExtractWizardGtk.exe with Mono Framework (or from a Terminal with monoExtractWizardGtk.exe
  • extract-wizard-macos-*.zip (macOS)- Extract to a folder and double click on the application. You may drag it to your Applications folder for easier launch in the future.

There is also a command line (CLI) version which is available on the following packages

  • AkeebaPortableToolsSetup.exe (Windows) - Just run the installer to install it
  • extract-cli-macos-linux-*.zip (Linux and macOS) - Extract to a folder and add it to your $PATH for quick access.

Tip

If you're on Windows you may want to disable your Antivirus or Windows Defender when extracting backup archives. The extraction will be much faster.

Alternatively, you can set up a directory exception in Windows Defender / your antivirus: exclude the folder where you are extracting the backup archive to make the extraction faster. If you (also) exclude your local server's web root you'll see that your local Joomla!, WordPress, Drupal, Magento, PrestaShop, etc sites now run very fast.

The reason is simple: antivirus software, like Windows Defender, will scan each and every file being accessed. While this is desirable for random files, it's not a good idea for local sites which need to access hundreds of files on every page load or for extracting a site which consists of several thousands of small files.

Changelog

Bug fixes*

  • Ignore Most Errors option still caused errors on Windows when the folder or file name included invalid characters. This bug also affected the -i switch of eXtract CLI on Windows.

This is a bugfix release of Akeeba eXtract Wizard written in C# targeting the .NET and Mono framework versions 4.5 and later.

Changelog

  • Could not extract JPS archives. There was a bug in the packaging system which resulted in an outdate version of the code being included in the Windows package.
  • Crash when extracting on Linux or macOS. There was a thread safety issue while setting the label with the latest extracted file leading to a SIGSEV during extraction.
  • The Help button led nowhere. Now it leads back to the Wiki in this repository.
  • The Donate button didn't do anything on Linux and macOS. Apparently the Gtk# documentation was a bit vague. Now using a different approach.
