Akeeba Backup Popular ComponentModulePlugin

Akeeba Backup Core is the successor to the now famous JoomlaPack component. In a nutshell, Akeeba Backup Core is an open-source backup component for the Joomla! CMS, quite a bit different than its competition. Its mission is simple: create a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server. Its possibilities: endless. It creates a full backup of your site in a single archive. The archive contains all the files, a database snapshot and an installer similar in function to the standard Joomla! installer. The backup and restore process is AJAX powered to avoid server timeouts, even with huge sites. Alternatively, you can make a backup of only your database, or only your files. If you want a reliable, easy to use, open source backup solution for your Joomla! site, try it out.

Akeeba Backup has won the prestigious Administrator Only Extension J.O.S.C.A.R. Award at J and Beyond 2010. Download it for free to find out why.

Excellent so far... I installed it on Joomla 1.0.12 and haven't actually performed a re-install, but I was just looking for a simple solution for a backup.

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.

Thanks Nicholas!!!

The start is there, now put in more features.

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.

I tested this on 1.0.12 and it backed up everything perfectly,however when I tried to install the backup on a different domain it consistently timed out.Cant seem to find any FAQS or documents for this,It will be a really good addition to Joomla when the bugs are sorted, I hope the dev can sort this soon.

I tested it on a local 1.0.11 installation, uploaded it on a remote server, untarred using SSH, and it just worked :)

Two things:
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 ;)

RECOMMENDED!

How long have I been waiting for a solid component like this? A LONG TIME! Finally, a strong component for backing up files AND the database...

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!

I had been looking for a good backup utility so I decided to try this on a test site. It installed easily, had a good interface and the first backup went smoothly with good visual feedback as to how it was progressing. It looks to do what it says on the box without any issues. Keep in mind that I reserve final judgment until I am able to a test restore of the backup. But so far it looks great. Thanks a lot Nicholas!

It looked good, but when i've tried it a few times it always hanged for a unlimited time. The idea is nice but it didn't work. Perhaps because it seems to use J!1.0.11 installer while the latest is 1.0.12
