Should be on EVERY SITE to "secure" it.
Easy to use, and great features. I love especially the ability to upload my backups automatically to dropbox.
It is also very simple to transfer your whole site to another webserver.
Was worth every cent!
Whenever I make a major update to my site, I download it as a jpa file with Akeeba. On more than one occasion, disaster struck and I had to restore my site (or move it to a new domain). The first time it happened, I panicked. Then I used Akeeba Kickstart and my site was back online in a matter of minutes. I didn't have to do anything but extract and fill in my database info again.
Instead of worrying about downloading all of your files and databases manually, Akeeba lets you store it as one single file, which you can then upload to ANY empty directory, extract and voila! Your site is restored, or copied, or whatever your heart may desire.
If you run a Joomla site and do not have Akeeba, I recommend that you remedy your situation immediately.
Do NOT try to run a Joomla! web site without it.
Everytime you see "update your Joomla!" or "update your extension" , you are warned to save your site before : Akeeba.
Installation, setup, and use straightforward. I use in with Akeeba eXtract Wizard for local development
I just maintain the one website of a very small club, and I have no skill whatsoever in coding. That's what I am found of joomla! and of make-my-life-easy-extensions such as Akeeba.
I made a donation. Many thanks
I have tested it and it works.
Database: manually deleted, files and folders: manually deleted.
The restore has been completed after 5 minutes without any errors.
BTW: I have not read the manual - so you can see it's really easy.
My recommendation? YES, absolutely!
