Backup and Restore for Joomla

XCloner is a Backup and Restore component. The purpose is to allow us the possibility to clone our Joomla installation. In this article I will explain how to create a Full Backup and Restore for Joomla using XCloner.

  1. Get the XCloner-Backup and Restore component for Joomla.
    • Features:
      • Create full or partial backups based on your input.
      • Create simple or compressed backups based on your configuration input.
      • Possibility to create incremental backups, so you avoid the time limit problems on php script executions.
      • Possibility to exclude directory and files from the backup, manually or through cron settings (AJAX powered).
      • Create backups based on a cron task, created backups can be stored on the local server, remotely through ftp or emailed to a custom email account.
      • The generated clone of XCloner can be restored on a totally different server, with new server and mysql details.
      • Restore both simple and compressed archives.
      • Restore script is independent from the main component and Joomla and can be run on any host.
      • Full restore of a clone made with XCloner.
      • Ability to restore the original files and directories permissions.
      • Automatic re-write of the new host settings to the configuration file.
  2. Sign into Joomla as administrator:
  3. Go to menu “Extensions -> Extension Manager”. Install XCloner-Backup and Restore component: Extension Managerinstall xcloner componen
  4. Then, go to menu “Components -> xcloner”. After the installation, it’s ready to use: menu componet
  5. This is the main screen of the component, from here we can generate backups, download backup and restore your site: xcloner main screen
