Introduction

Site Security

LazyDbBackup is based on LazyBackup by Stefan Granholm. (GNU/GPL 2 or over license). This plugin was internationalised (for Joomla! 1.5 and 1.6) and modified to run with Joomla! 1.6 and now Joomla! 2.5 (Joomla! 3.2 too).
All versions come now with English, French, German translation files (thanks to Nathalie Laurent (n-at-work.net) for this German translation) and now Spanish translation by Jorge Ferreira (jorguito.com). 2012-12-20 : added italian translation by Giovanni Roli.

Its purpose is to backup your Joomla! (only MySQL) database and send the backup file by e-mail. One parameter allows you to deactivate the e-mail feature; the backup files are then kept in a special folder which you can download by FTP when needed.

A MUST have!

Simple, easy, necessary!

Every website I install gets this extension!



Almost did not install on my J!3 sites since the update was so old. The newest (as of this review) is 3.1.2


I have been using Lazy backup in all its various forms for many years. It's a great way to always have a timely backup handy in case of data loss, hacking behavior and just be able to sleep at night.

My philosophy is that if I backup the files alone, I don't have a website. But if I have the database I can always build a new site on it.

LB does the job splendidly.


The support for this product is amazing, I emailed the developer, he responded that very afternoon and we exchanged several emails. The extension itself is easy to setup and use, we have it running on over 30 websites.


This plugin is a MUST for every website! It has saved me from disaster and is also an easier way to get a quick datadump.

Owner's reply: Thanks to You, donmarvin and to all previous contributors!

Well done

This is a Must for a website. All my clients (many!!!) have this extension and I get all DB backups direct on an e-mail address. I saved two customer sites after an attack.

Thanks...


Good.

i used this plugin that is very good to backup auto. However, not support for UTF-8 fomat to gzip or not compression.


Lazy but not worthless!

Love this little plug-in. Simple and easy. Just set and don't worry (until something bad happens). Thanks for a great app!


Install, activate, and enter a little information and you're to go. Database backups sent to your inbox. Makes me happy, happy, happy!


Thank You!!
