Easy Joomla Backup - EJB

Easy Joomla Backup creates 'old-school' backups without any frills. All files and a full database dump are stored in one backup zip archive. With this archive you have all important data with which you can restore the website completely combined in one package.

The component is intentionally kept simple, so as not to distract from the essentials: backing up the Joomla! website!

Use the cronjob plugin to schedule your backups!

This is a great tool that will make backups easy. With a few simple steps you have a choice to ether back up all files and the connected sql database in one zip archive or the option to choose the sql or the files in separate zip archive. Once the installation is finished its easily accessible in the components menu. Thanks for a great product. I plan on donating and using this commercially.

Easy, fast install. Download without registration (always a plus for me!).
Simple straightforward process to back up.
The backed up, zipped file is listed under the component area in the admin area of your site, with a link to download it.

This extension keeps things simple and does its declared task exactly as the coder describes. It works and is free. The one must be pretty spoiled to expect more;)
