I have been a long time Joomla user and have used xCloner as my previous backup solution but since the release of Akeeba I have decided that it is an easier tool to use and would be a better all round backup solution. Akeeba is also a lot faster than xCloner. However I have a few questions if I may.
1. One of the features of xCloner is I can set an FTP site for the backup to be sent to instead of just storing it on the same server. I do this so that is the server itself fails I can get the files from the other server and restore.
2. Will the cron in the Pro version enable me to run the backup every night and as per 1 transfer the backup to the other server via FTP and then allow me to delete the local backup copy?
3. Does the Pro version enable me to exclude some directories, i.e. cache from the site cache and admin?
Thanks for your help.
