XCloner-Backup and Restore
I bought this component after trying out the other free versions, even the cron job one.

I have read and seen the excellent tutorials on the joomlaplug website. I also started using the component in several of my sites without a glitch.


Until I stumbled into a JaclPlused site I have. There the restore function would no enable me to gain admin access to the restored site. Bummer - I thought!

No problem! Just went into the ticket support system of the site and started a new ticket with this issue. After some debugging and live support (due to the exquisite nature of the problem - ACL) Ovidiu - the joomlaplug GOD (I don't know how else to call him) the problem was solved. And I might add it was not a straightforward one. AND, it wasn't actually a Jomola Cloner bug. I also have to add that the return times on support requests is BLINDING FAST!

Therefore I came to two conclusions:

1 - I must review this component, coder, support website as 5 STAR.

2 - Ovidiu must surely NOT sleep! He answers your prayers before you even submit your ticket.

I am totally satisfied with this backup solution. I do sleep a bit better, now that I know I have full backups of my sites with SQL DB's and all.
