If you're a intermediate level developer, I cannot stress how much easier this makes working with a joomla site.
For example, I have a localhost development site, a live test/launch server, and the live site. If I make changes to the live site or the development server, I can make a mirror of the revised site as easily as doing a clean joomla install. Or you can build you're own core joomla install, with all the extensions and changes that work for you, pack it up. And then rather spending the hours re-configuring each joomla install you done as soon as you run the install, and you can get to the business of building your site.
There's a lot of deep control about what and where to pack. So if you think that this has nothing to offer you, check it out. I'll bet you'll be surprised.
It's the easiest way to develop a project in local without problems and deploy it in production in a few minutes.
I found that the documentation was exteremly thorough, but it took me several hours of reading through a 60+ page pdf before I was confident that I had cracked the procedure.
This product does exactly what it says on the tin. This is a must have component for serious Joomla users. It really is first class.
Hey Presto. Cloned.
If i was going to offer any constructive criticism that would be the structure of the download list (I first accidentally downloaded a beta of something else), but once I knew what I was looking for it was pretty straightforward. Nice one!
It works right out of the box, no hacking, no tricks, no surprises, it just does what it promises. It also has very good default presets in the configuration options. That means you can, but not necessarily need to go through the settings.
With Kickstart it simply couldn't be easier to use even for noobs.
I'm just so sorry not to find this component earlier. It would have saved hours (days) of boring and dangerous work for me.
Congratulation and big THANK YOU for its developers. This component should be part of the core joomla framework.
In Summary, Using Joomlapack and the additional tools these developers provide is equivalent between riding a skateboard (manual backup) and driving a Ferrari (Using JoomlaPack and the additional tools).
What exemplary stellar tools. Outstanding! To let everyone know, I have just now realized after going through my own learning curve of how to set up everything, (it's not that hard to do, but does take a little time, READ the Instructions, you will honestly do yourself a BIG Favor and actually Save TIME!) but it's worth every second of prep time spent in setting it up for the 100 fold rewards you will get in return.
I will be able to save about 2 hrs a week not having to manage my backups anymore. I have a small web development company (11 customers and growing) and almost exclusively use Joomla! CMS.
I can say to anyone reading this post that Joomlapack, JoomlaPack Native Tools and Kickstart when used either as standalone products or leveraging the power of the combination of these tools are extreemly powerful and timesaving.
Without an easy reliable way to backup and restore you Joomla! web site, you are setting yourself up for a world of pain, whaling and gnashing of teeth! JoomlaPack is the way to go!
This tool is best used with another automated backup but serves as peace of mind for the full site!
