Overview

MagePlace Backup Extension

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:

  • One-click backup creation
  • Scheduled and fully automatic backup using cron
  • Easy backup of Magento DB and files
  • Flexible settings of backup sources
  • Send offsite backup via FTP and SFTP protocols
  • Indicate folders on local backup server to save backup files to
  • Indicate folders on Dropbox to save backup files to
  • Automatic file splitting when copying backup to Dropbox*
  • AmazonS3 and Box.com remote storage support
  • Google Drive storage support
  • Backup process logs maintenance
  • Saving information both in a log file and in the database.

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.

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 this module clean up automatically on a FTP site? That is e.g. delete backups older than 14 days?

Thanks

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
