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