JoomlaPack is a fantastic backup tool

JoomlaPack is a great backup tool!

You put a lot of time, effort and money into creating a content-rich website. It may even be the lifeblood of your business. Isn’t it worth protecting?

If you only use one Joomla! Extension then it should be a solid backup tool that allows you to make a complete copy of your Joomla! website.

JoomlaPack is just such a tool and best of all it’s open source.

Please note: since this article was originally published JoomlaPack has been renamed Akeeba Backup, you can find the updated website here - Akeeba Backup website.

JoomlaPack – what it does

JoomlaPack allows you to create a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server. It creates a full backup of your site in a single archive. The archive contains all the files, a database snapshot and a restoration script (derived from the standard Joomla! installer). The backup and restore process is AJAX or plain JavaScript powered, designed to avoid server timeouts, even with multi-gigabyte sites! Alternatively, you can make a backup of only your database.

JoomlaPack – features

  • One click full site backup - backs up your site files and your site database in one go.
  • Robust operation – can run in AJAX or plain JavaScript mode, JoomlaPack will chunk the backup operation in order to avoid the server timing out, even with multi-gigabyte sites.
  • Restoration made easy – using the Kickstart tool it’s dead easy to restore a site.
  • Portability – JoomlaPack is great for moving your website between hosts when setting up a cloned test site.
  • Rich collection of filters – very simple to exclude individual files and directories, or database tables from the backup.
  • Proactive development – JoomlaPack is one of the most popular Joomla! Extensions and for good reason. The development team continue to improve and finetune the program on a regular basis.

If you run a Joomla! powered website then JoomlaPack is a great tool, it takes about 10 seconds to install and it will give you some piece of mind.
