Good work from Akeeba !
Do not run your website without it even if under development on your local server,,,
Nobody can guarantee it of course but in my opinion this is the best backup solution for the time being for a joomla website
Thank you Nicholas (the developer)
I used this tool when I upgraded a Joomla website from 2.5 to 3 and this component let me sleep well because if something would go wrong, I still could trust in Akeeba.
I like the way they engage honestly with all their customers. The service tickets are wonderful to read. One word to describe this product--essential. Another -- invaluable. The level of support I have received is always great. Easy to usage and deploy. Very trustworthy source. I use to to make backups for our business law firm in California, USA. It's educational to use the software.
I am not a professional or an expert in computer science.
The extension itself is really good an easy to use. The support ist one of the best I've ever had!
Backup itself is very easy. And after recovering the website from backup the only thing I do is I just open configuration.php in the website root to check description or mysql path.
I wouldn't be able to backup and transfer websites easier and better then this app does myself.
All this is available on the free version. That is a 5 star product.
Why go paid? I don't have to do anything any more. My sites e-mail me when they need my help! My sites back themselves up before extension installs. My sites back themselves up at set times. My sites send their backups into the cloud and I do NOTHING!
Is that worth the cost. Yes. Even more so when you look at the pricing model.
Nicholas must be the drunkest man at every Joomla Event he attends as everybody must be buying him drinks! I know I will when I eventually get to one!
When I have had questions or needed support, Nick at Akeeba has been incredibly helpful.
Excellent extensions, and great support!
