Magento Backup Extension by MagePlace is a simple but useful solution to backup your Magento web shop to a separate server. Everybody knows how vitally important it is to make regular backups. Timely backup is a guarantee that you can restore your site fast and get back on wheels in case of emergency. But not everybody knows that it’s not enough just to make a backup. Backup files should be stored offsite, on a separate server with easy and prompt access, so you can get and use them quickly in case of any emergency.
Keeping backups on the same server means you’re secured against software error. This way you can restore site if it has been hacked or harmed after incorrect customization. But keeping backup files on different servers saves you from software and hardware troubles. Modern data centers are very secure but still various kinds of accidents occur – hardware failures, fires, power shortages, floods, cable disconnections with data center and so on.
With this Backup Extension for Magento it becomes a lot easier to create backup files and to store them on in distant servers. You can back up Database and files of the whole site. With flexible settings you can define what parts exactly you want to backup – whole database, certain tables of DB, DB with certain folders or files and so on. You can save a backup file to your server (and copy to local computer afterwards) or copy it directly to a distant could storage, for example Dropbox. We will add more cloud services as the project grows.
The Magento Backup Extension from MagePlace works with Google Drive, Box.com, Dropbox and Amazon online storages to create offsite backups. Now users have the possibility to fill in the S3 Amazon storage settings and point out both the bucket and directory, where the archive files will be sending. Same with Google Drive - you can define separate folder for your backups and have direct access to them from any computer.
In order to work with Dropbox just indicate your Dropbox login details and the extension will send files directly from Magento, without additional fuss form your side.You can synchronize online storage with your local computer and have up-to-date backup files on all computers you want. You can also share folder on Dropbox or Box.com and provide access for developers to restore the system.
That’s now possible to adjust the cron scheduler so that the program would automatically backup of the site or specified databases daily, weekly, monthly or once on the scheduled day and time. It`s possible to select cron settings for each individual profile. Moreover you can setup a cron task to send backup files to the cloud server too. The service is automatic and requires no further intervention by the user. In short, cron is used to schedule definite tasks for our Magento backup extension.
MagePlace Backup Extension include:
Do not miss the Merge file addon to merge together all the pieces that were sent to Dropbox storage. You will need it if you decide to restore system from backup. Merge script can be found in your members area together with the Backup extension itself. This script can work with local files on your computer as well as files on server.
