Description of my issue:
I am trying to move a large site to a different server. The file is 1.2gig but my ftp file upload limit is 250meg. I remember reading somewhere but now I cannot find it, where I can break up the file into multiple smaller files. Can you point me to where I can find the documentation to break up the jpa file?


Akeeba Staff

you can split your backup in a multi-part one.
You can find the option inside the Configuration page, in this page you can find more info.
