Description of my issue: This is not an issue. Just a query. Hi, I have Vik Booking and Vik Channel Manager (VCM) 2 components running on Joomla. The VCM was a recent addition, over the past couple of days, and I have not done a test restore in a while. I am expecting that once I do a restore from the backups all settings will be restored as well. Any Thoughts ?

I'm not familiar with either component. Akeeba Backup will restore exactly the same settings as were in effect when you did the backup. I have a case where the site runs a family tree program which is not a Joomla! component. If I were to restore that backup to another server, I would need to manually adjust the database settings, etc. because that family tree program does not pick them up from Joomla!.

So my answer is a definite probably. The days of Joomla! component authors hard coding settings in the component configuration is pretty much past.
