One feature of Akeeba Backup Professional is to allow you to automatically store the backup on a remote location.
Microsoft OneDrive is a very popular option as it provides you with 15 gigabytes of cloud storage space free of charge, and it is very simple with Akeeba Backup Professional to configure your backups to be saved to OneDrive.
To begin go to the Configuration, scroll down to the processing engine.
Here you can see many options, including upload to Microsoft OneDrive.
Once that's selected, choose Configure.
In order for our web site to talk to Microsoft OneDrive we need to authenticate it. Click on the authentication button and a popup will open. You may be asked to login.
Now, click on the complete authentication button.
The directory that we want to store it inis by default the root of our Microsoft Onedrive account, but we can store it anywhere we want, including a subdirectory.
As you can see a token has been automatically entered.
Once you have configured Microsoft OneDrive, Save and Close your configuration and you are now ready to perform your first backup with the files being saved in Microsoft OneDrive.
Once the backup has completed, we can go to our Manage Backups and here we can see the backup just took place, it is a Remote Backup, and it is stored remotely.
From this link we are able to bring the backup back from Microsoft OneDrive directly on to our web server or our desktop.
Now every time a backup is performed by Akeeba Backup Professional, the backup file itself is being stored remotely in our Microsoft OneDrive account.
