6 out of 5 Stars!
Only suggestion: Separate One Page Quick Start Guide. (Would probably be all the documentation needed by about 95% of us)
Everyone needs to keep a backup. For Joomla! websites, JoomlaPack seems to be the way to do it!
Remembering the old days, transfering sites via long ftp- and phpmyadmin-sessions, I will never do it without JoomlaPack.
Thank you so much!!!
but there is one small problem, which isn't so much the software, but it affects the software
Having a large website, it cannot back it up completely, it runs out of memory to complete the task (my website is nearly 7gb, so I would expect this to happen), so if you have a large website, seriously look at external back-up solutions
I also recommend the remote backup application to ensure scheduled backups and automatic, customizable download(s) for safekeeping.
I highly recommend this component as a must have and one of the first things you must install. Thanks a million guys!
This one however was an absolute doddle. Extremely easy to configure and the recovery process was so fast that I didn't even have time to have a cup of tea! Backed up a site and then restored it completely into an empty directory. The new site was back up and running in less than 5 minutes!
Congratulations. I am very impressed (and that is unusual)
