We use if for migrating test/development Joomla sites to live sites. Or domain X.com to domain Y.com scenarios.
It handles all the permission and domain issues without any problems.
This is as great a tool for migrating sites to new domains as it is for backups IMO. No more hiding development sites until ready get the basics up and carry on working on the development site and then migrate it over again when ready or updated.
Brilliant - well done to the developers.
The support has been OUTSTANDING on their side as they respond incredibly quickly when issues due arise. Keep up the strong releases of this wonderfully easy to use tool.
I have not given many Joomla extensions 5 stars - this one really deserves it!
Thanks once again to the team
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!
Anyway, thank you for making my Joomla life easier, and not charging for it. Very deserving of a donation.
