I just purchased, installed, and configured Akeeba Backup.
Taking a backup with Akeeba Backup takes an absurdly long time.
For example, just one table with 1 million rows seems to take an infinite amount of time to backup during the Akeeba Backup process (eg. over 1 hour).
If I log in to phpmyadmin and simply export the table from there, it takes like 5 seconds.
I don't see the point in using Akeeba Backup if the backup times are this long (1+ hour)... This is infinitely more inconvenient than simply logging into phpmyadmin and exporting the database, which takes a couple of minutes at most.
