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! 3.4.6 too). Two versions: PDO (doesn't work on some servers) and Mysqli.
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.
