Akeeba Backup
I'm sorry for writing negative review, but this component broke down 3 different templates (used in 3 different sites).. 2 of them were from rockettheme, 1 was self-made.

The back-up basically just saved the original version of the template without any added settings, module positions, images etc.

Looking at all the positive reviews that should not be a big problem to solve, but, still - it is easier to choose other components which work out of the box, not this one..

Let's see... The template settings are saved in the database (Joomla! 1.6/1.7) or the params.ini file (Joomla! 1.5). In both cases, this is part of what is being backed up by Akeeba Backup.

Moreover, our own site uses a RocketTheme template (Omnicron, to be exact) and it does restore fine, as can be attested by the very fact that our site is working after three different restorations.

Perhaps you should take 10 minutes to follow the instructions in the post-restoration troubleshooting page at to figure out what special settings your server requires when restoring a site. That's why we do have such detailed documentation and provide it free of charge to all.
