Backup is crucial and after been using the build-in backup at the Cpanel and had some restore disasters, and that you have to do the database backup separately, we decided it was time to go for the Akeeba Backup.
After had tested the non-commercial version we have bought the pro version which was a “laid-back installation” and the same goes for backing-up. We had some problems with the restore of our first backup, which was a 100% clone of our production site to our new development site. However, it was down to ourselves not the Akeeba backup, after Nicholas’s exceptional support we were up and running for good. We have by now done several restores of sites using Kickstart.php, which restore your site like a standard Joomla installation.
The documentation provided by Nicholas is very comprehensive. It is huge, but it takes you through everything step by step.
Someone here at the review for Akeeba Backup mentioned that Nicholas is a Joomla Guru and Teacher, I agree 100%.
Thank you for this great Joomla backup.
We have also bought the Admin Tools Pro version and I owe a review for this Joomla extension as well.
We are looking forward to continuing the co-operation with Nicholas.
