Introduction

Database Management

EasyStaging is a Joomla! 2.5.4+ and 3.3.x+ component that simplifies the process of copying changes from a private "staging" version of a website to a "live" or public web server.

  • Get this

EasyStaging allows you to replicate a "development" website to a "live" or "staging" location through replication plans. Using the concept of Plans you can copy the contents to multiple live/staging site locations.

EasyStaging Plans allows you create Plans for specific users groups using Joomla! 2.5+ ACL model and control what the Plan will let them copy
• all files or just those in a specific directory e.g. /images/dept/joes-files/
• all files that match a specific regex patter
• or even exclude from the copy files matching a pattern
• copy all tables in a database
• copy a specific set of tables
• or copy a table only if it doesn't already exist on the target site

Version 1.2.1 adds Joomla 3.3+ support and more robust testing features.
Version 1.1.0 is a huge re-write of the way plans are run and now include table pull backs, multiple directory syncs per plan and file pull backs.
v1.1.1 added extra settings to debug some setups.
v1.1.2 fixes a problem for users upgrading from some versions of 1.0.0 and Betas of 1.1.0.

Works but be careful


Posted on 06 October 2012

This is a great a powerful tool. Its a bit like using a table saw without any of the safety equipment.



1st backup you site.. (www.akeebabackup.com works well)

2nd copy your backup to a different host/computer

3rd Have a little linux knowledge before you start

4th Do not have you staging site in a physical subdirectory of the main site (it makes the rsync setup confusing and painful)



This plugin uses rsync, and if you configure it wrong it will delete you entire install.. (you have been warned!! - but its worth struggling through)



Ok, This tool once configured works very well copying both the file and DB contents from one site to another. It interferes with bi-directional copying by removing its self from the target.



So in my case I copied from Live to my new staging site (worked well) and had to reinstall to copy from my new staging site to live (also worked well, 2nd time. 1st time I messed up the config and had to restore from backup)



Maybe the author could add mode to preview the rsync dry run. This would begin to make this tool a little safer.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review, we did add testing buttons in version 1.1.3 for both Rsync and Database connections.

EasyFooTables is a Joomla 3.x implementation of the FooTables plugin for WordPress from the awesome FooPlugins people. EasyFooTables implements a Joomla content plugin using the traditional curly braces syntax {} and can be used anywhere a content plugin will work. Simple place {footables} in any article, Custom HTML module or wherever else you find content plugins work and the plugin will add the necessary FooTables Query plugin to the page and install the initialisation script. All you have to do then is add the footable class to your table tag and some data-hide attributes to the table headings and you're good to go!

The EasyGoogleCSE module allows for simple integration of a Google Custom Search Engine into a Joomla website. It's a standard Joomla module installed via the Joomla Extensions Manager and it's only requirements are that you have setup a Google Custom Search Engine. This module allows you to create a CSE that uses the overlay method (a lightbox effect overlayed over your website and hosted by Google) or a results page (i.e. Google CSE will send your users to a page on your website to display the results). To have the results displayed in a page of your site is easy using EasyGoogleCSE.
