So....I got out my trusty BigApe backup set and tried to restore the database - man! what a mess...
The comment tag used in BigApe backups (//) causes errors during a SQL query. So I had to manually edit out all the lines that started with // and then restored the backup, but now my database is really screwed up with several of the tables having lost their auto increment tag.
So...I've installed this new one, it works really well, and I HOPE it works for restoring my site...- havent' tried that part yet.
So I backed up with just a click and downloaded it with a click too. I extracted the backup data to my localhost and setup up a new mysql account (you know to dump all your site data). Then I pointed to localhost/xxxx/installation and followed the page (like normal installation). It works like wonder. Time taken, 2 minutes at 12 seconds.
Word of advise, to eases your transplanting project, remember to have your password, database, user of database exactly the same as the site. Saves headache.
Thank you developer for such a wonderful piece of work!
1. Download this tool
2. Install it; installation process is pretty simple and there is no problem
3. Go to Component > JoomlaPack and then press 'create backup' button after viewing Basic configuration once.it took only a minute and half to complete the whole process for my 500+ page site and everything was shown on screen.
4. there is built-in option to download the backup file but i was not able to get it from there but you can always download files from servers via any ftp software!
5. After uploading file to new location, unzip it.
6. Once unzipped, open the index in browser and install the Joomla as you had done for the first time!
7. I had used the same password as previous and then obviously you have to remove the installation folder!
YOUR SITE IS TRANSFERRED in no time!
Highly recommended tool!
Just make sure you have the disk space... :-P My first attempt hung up about a third of the way through. I e-mailed Nicholas and he promptly responded with possible solutions and tips. Great CS!
The only improvement I could suggest at this point is to update it for 1.0.12.
I'm using BigAPE backup now and the option to select which folders should be included in the backup is very usefull.
Also a page where you can manage your packed files would be an improvement.
Currently it is to basic, but keep up the good work.
1. After the installation process, delete configuration.php (+ the intallation-folder, of course) before trying to access the site.
2.Use the same login-details as before! At the end of the installation-process, it gives you the loginname and password for administration you typed on the page before (as in a standard installation). If you decide to use an all new password, it's not gonna work; the old one from ther earlier installation is still active. That's actually great! Except that you shouldn't trust the screen if you just typed a new one ;)
Would be nice...
- If there were options to backup the database and files individually or together.
- was able to be kicked off by a crontab
Thanks to the developer for this long overdue component!
