My site was hacked twice last year and restoring was a real pain!
Yesterday I managed to crash my site, so I used Kickstart to restore from these backups...site was up and running perfectly in no time. So relieved! I really am sleeping a little better right now.
You can NOT go wrong with Akeeba. It is solid, simple, effective, designed with attention to detail and on top of that the documentation is great (to say the least). Kudos to the developers for this outstanding extension.
The restoration was A BREEZE!! It restored my tables, ALL of my files and the site was back up and running LIVE within 30 minutes!!
TO THE CREATOR(S): I must say please don't ever stop making components for Joomla! This is probably one of the best, well designed components i've seen. No bugs that i can tell, the documentation was well written. Well done guys! If i had your address I would send you some beer for this, but then you'd be too drunk to make more awesome products!
It installs perfectly. It updates perfectly. It informs you with what is going on. The documentation is perfect. The forum is usable and active. This is rarely done with even the simplest extensions, yet Akeeba Backup has to take in so many variables that it is amazing.
There are many well-intentioned providers in the Joomla world, and many great programs. There are some who go out of their way to help, but none that I have used compare in efficiency on every point of user friendliness and getting the job done.
I have had no experience with support as it was never needed. And yes I will be donating!
The manual is also nicely written and proves to be a great help.
In general, great component and a must have for a Joomla site.
Many thanks to the author.
