CHAPTER 5: Administering Joomla! > Backing Up the Joomla! Installation

Backing Up the Joomla! Installation

All of the content and many of the Joomla settings are held in the various tables in the Joomla database. However, all of the installed extensions and the site configuration data are stored as files within the Joomla folder hierarchy. To perform a complete Joomla site backup, you'll need a method of saving the Joomla files in addition to the data.


Note There are a number of fine backup solutions such as JoomlaPack (www.joomlapack.net) and LazyBackup (www.granholmcms.com) available through the Joomla extensions site. These solutions may provide all the backup capabilities that you need. However, be sure whatever solution you choose that you ensure both file and database backup so your site can be restored quickly and effectively.
