Introduction

Backup, Site Security

Akeeba Backup Core is the most widely used open-source backup component for the Joomla! CMS. Its mission is simple: create a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server, making it ideal not only for backups but also for site transfers or even deploying sites to your clients' servers. Akeeba Backup creates a full backup of your site in a single archive. The archive contains all the files, a database snapshot and an installer similar in function to the standard Joomla! installer. The backup and restore process is AJAX powered to avoid server timeouts, even with huge sites. Alternatively, you can make a backup of only your database, or only your files. Akeeba Backup is the reliable, easy to use, open source backup solution for your Joomla! site.

Ease of use

Support

Documentation
Most things are covered on the site on youtube and other places , so it documented rather well
I used this to: Backup my Joomla Site DB, and transfer the DB to developer machine
Owner's reply: Akeeba Backup does export triggers, stored procedures and functions. You need to enabled this feature, as documented. This is intentional. Exporting (and importing) them requires additional database privileges which are not granted on most commercial hosts, causing errors. Also, the overwhelming majority of sites don't use them.

While personalized support does have a cost, filing a bug report is and has always been free of charge. You will find the link to our Contact Us page (https://www.akeebabackup.com/contact-us) at the bottom of every page of our site. Please use it and do remember to select Bug Report in the drop-down menu there. Please don't include any SQL in your contact request. I'll get back to you as soon as I reasonably can. I don't care if you're a paying client or not, I want you to be able to enjoy using Akeeba Backup all the same.

Finally, I'd like to note that the subscription cost is 50 Euros (Australian $80) for the first year, but it's 30 Euros (Australian $48.50) for each subsequent year. Moreover, the vast majority of features is made available free of charge. The subscription fee is only required if you want advanced features and / or personalized support from the developers. It's a small fee that makes it possible for us to earn a very modest living and continue to develop our software. It is NOT a requirement to contact us.
