How to back-up a Joomla site


2013-07-01_014329

Thankfully, there is a option that makes life a lot easier. It’s called Akeeba Backup and it basically automates the whole process outlined above, there’s also a utility that lets you ‘unpackage’ the back up onto your server if there’s a problem with your site.

It’s a great way to speed up the process and there’s plenty of documentation and a free download here. A word of caution though – whilst Akeeba is very good, we’d always recommend taking a manual back up from time to time, just in case there’s a problem.
