Creating a Backup of your Joomla! Site
If you'd like to back up your Joomla! website, and you're a client of CloudAccess.net, log in to the Administration area (the back end) of your site and go to the Cloud Control Panel.
The Cloud Control Panel is a custom component that we have installed into your Joomla! website. It is not available at any other hosting company. We've compiled many useful features here to assist you as you work with Joomla! Some options within the Cloud Control Panel are reserved for our paid hosting clients. Once inside the Cloud Control Panel, click on the Backup Option.
As part of the CloudAccess.net platform, we have included the Akeeba backup engine to help you create backups of your Joomla site. You'll have the option to either create an Akeeba backup of your entire site, or create a backup of your MySQL database and site files. Select the Akeeba Backup option to back up everything.
A loading screen will appear. Do not refresh the site or close your browser until it disappears.
After the backup is complete, you can review certain details about the back up including the date and time it was made and the size of the backup. Simply select the "Download Akeeba JPA package" link to save a copy of the backup.
As part of the CloudAccess.net platform, we backup our client sites and demo users sites every single day. We do suggest that you backup the site your self on a regular basis.
