Introduction

Backup, Site Security

Akeeba Backup Core is the most widely used open-source backup component for the Joomla! CMS. Its mission is simple: create a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server, making it ideal not only for backups but also for site transfers or even deploying sites to your clients' servers. Akeeba Backup 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. Akeeba Backup is the reliable, easy to use, open source backup solution for your Joomla! site.

The time that Akeeba Backup saves me adds to my leisure time.

Ease of use

Akeeba Backup is elementary to experienced web developers, and just takes minutes for newbies.

Support

I haven't had to use their support, in the couple of years that I have had the software. Support that is more than you need is perfect.

Documentation

I read through the docs to understand the thoughts behind the software. Now I browse occasionally, when I want to learn an advanced feature.

I used this to: Daily backups for my Joomla! sites. Reliable backups mean you are immune to hackers. If you get hacked, change your passwords (make them harder to guess), delete your site files & databases, and restore a known good backup. Your site is back to work, as if no hacker ever got in.

Good extension
