MagePlace Backup Extension


Please find full description at MagePlace Backup module page.

Protect your site with a handy backup tool

Everybody knows how vitally important it is to make regular backups. This helps to protect your web store, secures all information in Magento database and finally increases your sales. Conventional and timely backup is a guarantee that you can restore your site fast and get back on wheels in case of emergency.

Magento Backup is a simple but useful solution to back up your Magento web shop to a local or / and a separate remote server. Besides you’ve got the opportunity to set up automatic Magento backup on schedule without your presence and participation.

Take advantage of flexible settings

Our Backup Extension for Magento can back up entire database and individual files of the system on request. With flexible settings you can define what parts exactly you want to backup – whole Magento database, certain tables of DB, DB with certain folders or files, etc. This backup tool checks free space on the disk before starting the backup process.

Use offsite online storages

The Magento Backup Extension works with Dropbox, AmazonS3 Storage Service, Box.com Storage or Google Drive online storages to create offsite backups. You can synchronize online storages with your local computer and have up-to-date backup files on all computers you want. To utilize the Amazon S3 storage just add necessary settings and point out both the bucket and directory, where the archive files will be sent to. Same with Google Drive - you can define separate folder for your backups and have direct access to them from any computer.

To start working with Dropbox just indicate your Dropbox login details, define a folder to keep backups there. After this the extension will make remote backup and send files to Dropbox folder. It’s possible to share folder on Dropbox or Box.com and provide access to developers to restore the system.

Make automatic backups

You can make onsite and offsite automatic Magento backups on schedule: daily, weekly, monthly or once. Just adjust the cron scheduler so that the program would automatically start making backup on the scheduled day and time. You can create as many tasks as you want and change the information saved in automatic backup task anytime you want. Besides, it`s possible to select cron settings for each individual profile. Cron scheduler task can include sending backup files to a remote server too. In other words cron makes cloud Magento backup the same way as it is made without cron. The extension can send an email notification about the successful completion of the automated backup.

Use multistep functinality

Multistep functionality allows dividing the backup process into steps. This option will be useful for those users on whose server little time is set for script execution – it will be enough to set the time for one step less than the time allowed on the server for script execution.

Additionally, Time based multistep option allows not to split files into parts while uploading them to the cloud; this means that files can be now uploaded to the cloud server as a whole. This option has one exception – users won’t be able to use the cloud application “Box”, as it doesn’t support the required functionality. All the rest cloud applications support time limited upload.

Multistep option can be enabled separately for both manual and cron backups. It’s implemented so in order to allow disabling multistep for cron. When this option is enabled backup process lasts a little longer than without it – some servers can be adjusted so that more time and resources will be allocated for tasks executed by cron.

Easily delete backup files

Deleting of old backup files can be set up in two ways: a) deleting on the expiry of several days; b) deleting of the earlier backups if the total number of backups exceeds the determined number. Herewith user can chose either delete all the backup data completely, including the file on the server, log files and files on the cloud server; or delete only the backup record, but leave all the backup files.

Be aware of specific requirements

*Due to large popularity and server loads Dropbox and box.com have specific restrictions regarding file size and number of calls:

  • file size should not be too large so Dropbox and box.com servers will not be overloaded – that is why our extension automatically breaks backup file into smaller pieces of 100 Mbytes.
  • DropBox space limit – they provide you with some free space but you can easily extend your capacity signing up for their plans.
  • 5,000 API calls per day for each key – make sure you don't do this many backups within one day :). However if your site is very large - let us know in advance and we will check possible server load to define if this will work for you well.

There are some requirements to your server where Magento Shop is hosted (all these requirements are common for Magento but still we need to bring them up again):

  • Free space on the server not less than the size of the backup;
  • Zlib support in PHP. You will need to configure PHP with zlib, but don't worry - most Magento servers have this feature on.

If a folder size on the server is more than 500 Mb we insistently recommend you to allocate it to the separate backup profile, as on servers with the low website memory the backup process can be suddenly terminated.

MagePlace Backup Extension 5 5 6 6
Excellent Customer Service!!!! In a day and age when customer service is non-existent, this developer goes above and beyond to help its clients. We had an issue with Amazon S3 Bucket, and the developer (now Amasty) was able to solve our problem is short order. Turns out our settings in were incorrect on Amazon S3. And, they also offer to make additions to their user manual to help their future clients with the same issue. So kudos to Amasty!!!! And thanks for all of your great customer service!!!!! HAPPY USER!!!!!! August 19, 2014
Saved me once! Got this extension on sale as the price was really good, but didn't pay much attention to it (to be honest). it was doing backups as scheduled - and that was fine with me. Last months had issues with Hosting people - site got slow, went offline many times - Hosters did return it from their backups few times. But it was sooo slow- had to wait for hours and days. Then i remembered about this one - I had access to my data and backups all the time! long story short - i moved to another host and am happy with it, nevertheless, I realised this backup is must have ! Definitely recommend April 17, 2014
Me again :) Use this extension a couple of months - really good one, but as my website’s DB is HUGE I struggle a lot with this splitting into parts thing. Is it possible to run this splitting automatically? It would make the whole backup process much easier and faster for me. Thank you in advance. January 21, 2013
Great module - and fantastic support from developers. FINALLY a simple way to back up and restore Magento, something that seemed ridiculously overcomplicated to me. With this module backups are automatically done and transferred away for added security, set up was really simple with peace of mind that your hugely complicated Magento store can be easily restored and running again. Step by step restore instructions are being produced but developers talked me through procedure via email. January 15, 2013
Recently purchased Cloud Backup had a few hiccups with installation but the support team helped me to sort them out. Thanks for your job guys! November 28, 2012
Wonderful extension! Use it for all my projects and store different sites in amazon. A lot more useful than native Magento backup and very convenient. Thanks guys for support and help in server memory settings! September 19, 2012

Hi!

Can I restore a backup on another location without using this software? So I take a backup created by the software, at move it to e.g. my NAS server and then unpack it there?

Thanks

Answer: 
Yes, to restore the site into another server you need to load backup on server (unpack on server or local and then upload to the server), import the backup DB and change the data for DB access in the file /app/etc/local.xml.

You can find step by step instruction by following this link: http://www.mageplace.com/news-blog/how-to-restore-magento-shop-from-backup.html

Answer: 
Most likely the issue appears due to incorrect m\permissions of var folder or you've set incorrect location for log folder.

Please add a ticket in our support system http://www.mageplace.com/helpdesk/ticket_submit.php and include access details to your ftp, so we can check the issue.

Answer: 
Hello

Yes, backup extension can do automatic backups by cron schedule.

The backup extension can NOT define changes in files to backup , it can backup only specified files and folders/DB and tables.

You can set up backup profile for the files you change frequently and do complete backups occasionally.
