How to Backup Joomla

Check out our tutorial on how to create a complete Joomla 3 backup

Having a backup of your Joomla website is essential. There are many bad things that could happen to your site - an extension can malfunction, some of your code can break or even your site can get hacked. In such cases a recent backup of your Joomla 3 site can be a life saver. In this tutorial we will discuss several ways to create a complete backup of your site. We will explain the two most popular backup options: the standard manual backup and the more automated Akeeba backup. We will also give you information about the two additional options that are available when you use SiteGround Joomla hosting: the Softaculous backup and the professional backup by our expert Joomla support team.
