Introducing Akeeba Backup

Akeeba Backup is a complete site backup solution for your Joomla!™ powered website. It is designed to put your entire site – files and database data – in a backup archive file you can restore on the same or a different server. The restoration uses a web installer script. You do not have to mess with the command line or database management tools – or even edit configuration files by hand.

More than that, Akeeba Backup is putting you in control of your data. If you so with you can fine-tuning your backup choosing which directories, files or database tables to exclude. It can even allow you to backup non-Joomla!™ content, as long as you specify which off-site directories and databases you want to add.
