Find out how to backup your Joomla website using Akeeba Backup. Ensure no website data is lost by taking regular backups of your site.

It’s super important to take regular backups of your website, particularly when you’ve just made changes to it or are about to update your software.

It's always a good idea to back up your site before any maintenance or updates on your Joomla installation. This way, if something goes wrong when you’re updating modules/plugins, you can revert to the latest version of your website.

How often should you back up your site?

It depends on how often you add content to your website. If you add content regularly, e.g., once or twice a week, then weekly backups are essential. However, if you only make a couple of edits/changes per month, then regular monthly backups will do the trick.
