I have been building a new community site for about two months now, I do most of my testing on the same server using a sub-domain. I installed a forum bridge and was playing around with it when all of a sudden I had no access to either the front end nor the admin end of my test site. I almost blew my top but then I remembered that that I had installed joomla pack on the main site and made a backup of both the site and the data bank. So I gave JoomlaPack a go. I installed my main site to my test site and was up and running in just under 30 minutes!!! This is now my favorite Joomla extension. Hats off to the developers.
Not only does Joomlapack make backing up a cinch but it also makes the previously incredibly laborious task of updating to the latest version a walk in the park... Just put the zipped up updater in the root folder, upload kickstart, navigate to kickstart and sit back! Happy days!
What can i say about this extension? IT WORKS!! smoothly WOW
I moved an entire Joomla site, settings, content, mods, comp, and database to a completely different server under a different domain name, in about 10 mins. NO LIE!! Most of that 10 mins was downloading and uploading the site back up files..
Thanks guys for so much hard work! I will be pushing this hard are the next meeting for Joomla User Group Tampa!
To make this product a "Joomla Complete Winner" will be to just adding a Scheduled Backup / FTP upload from the back end and it will be a JoomlaCloner killer for free!
The bug (well not really but it could be a problem for some).
When creating a back-up from a website (lets say domain-a.com), and placing it on a different domain (say damain-b.com). The configuration.php has the wrong tmp folder stated. By this reason, installing a component does not work on your new domain.
What would be nice.
We would love to see the possibility to schedule a back-up weekly (maybe using cronjobs).
For a free component this fulfils everything we require.
Complete back up of a site, including installer.
I had a problem with one of the sites, checked the forum, the answer was already there after a quick search. Installed the latest version and it works perfectly.
It is worth a donation to the developers, again a great component.
Does exactly what it say's on the tin !
Simply great. Backup your site, download it, unpack it in a folder with a simple name, and procede as if it was a joomla usual instalation (meaning going to your browser and typing the url for the name you just give to the folder, for instance http://localhost:8888/backup). Here a wonderfully easy menu will do all for you.
Thank you guys, you did it.
