It is my first extension on every site I build.
The only problems I ever encountered using the extension have always turned out to be due to dud hosts
This extension is brillant, so is the documentation and the support :)
Many, many thanks to the developers. I will definitely consider your commercial extensions as my needs grow.
The reason for the restore was we are hosting elswhere. We installed the Bitnami VM stack, gave Akeeba 777 permissions on the joomla directory and then let it do its thing.
5 mins later we are up and running.
The hardest part was changing SQL credentials & also an issue with a Rocket template we are using disliking "localhost" so we had to change it to 127.0.0.1 and then it was fine.
Excellent product & excellent helpful support too.
after 3 years of joomla love now only i learn the use of BACKUP joomla :)
Thanks akeeba... THE MUST HAVE & MUST NEEDED EXTENSION... if joomla consider to put this free extension in default joomla installation many new people's like me get more confident...
