In this new age of website development, the most popular option for developing the website is using CMS’s like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento etc. So, most of the companies offering web development services prefer developing websites in WordPress or Joomla.

Development of the websites in WordPress and Joomla is very easy to create simple static or dynamic websites. Also, due to the enormous availability of plugins and extensions, developing a complicated website is also easy in WordPress and Joomla. But, when it comes to taking the site live most of the people struggle in doing this as they face many problems or waste time while taking the site live. Some of the problems and time-consuming tasks are:

  • Backup of files and database
  • Uploading all the images without missing single image to live server
  • Updating page URL’s as per domain
  • Uploading database

To backup the site there are a number of plugins available for WordPress and extensions available for Joomla but, using plugins and extensions I observed that they only had options to backup the files and database. What about restoring the backup on the live server?

We have got a new way to take backup of a website using Akeeba Backup. Using Akeeba backup you can do the backup, transfer and restore of your WordPress and Joomla Website within few mins.
