Do not miss out the complimentary companion desktop software (Akeeba SiteDiff and Akeeba eXtract Wizard) which are available free of charge from our site. They make working with Akeeba Backup a breeze.
Note: The software is free of charge, its support is not. You need a valid subscription (starting at EUR 7.79) to request support. However, its documentation, the troubleshooting wizard and searching the forum is free.

Thank you. If we get the money for it will most definitely buy the commercial version.
Thank you for your review!
I would like to let you know that our CRON information is more than complete. It actually offers step-by-step instructions for two alternate methods (CRON jobs on your server, or using webcron.org). The result is a three and a half printed pages reference documentation. You don't have to take my word for it, you can read the documentation page in question over here: https://www.akeebabackup.com/documentation/akeeba-backup-documentation/automating-your-backup.html#frontend-backup
Thank you so much for creating such a helpful component and the developers really thought about every aspect of it!
When you want to backup your site or move it, don't waste your time on other component. THIS IS IT!! THUMBS UP!!!
This is a must-have for EVERY Joomla user. Never worry about losing your data or having to transfer your website again.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am very glad there are great extensions out there to help us little guys do things we'd normally have *no clue* how to do.
I heartedly recommend this extension to anyone not only looking to move their site, but to keep back-ups for restoration if needed.
