Protect your site with a handy backup tool

Everybody knows how vitally important it is to make regular backups. This helps to protect your web store, secures all information in Magento database and finally increases your sales. Conventional and timely backup is a guarantee that you can restore your site fast and get back on wheels in case of emergency.

Magento Backup is a simple but useful solution to back up your Magento web shop to a local or / and a separate remote server. Besides you’ve got the opportunity to set up automatic Magento backup on schedule without your presence and participation.

Take advantage of flexible settings

Our Backup Extension for Magento can back up entire database and individual files of the system on request. With flexible settings you can define what parts exactly you want to backup – whole Magento database, certain tables of DB, DB with certain folders or files, etc. This backup tool checks free space on the disk before starting the backup process.

Use offsite online storages

The Magento Backup Extension works with Dropbox, AmazonS3 Storage Service, Box.com Storage or Google Drive online storages to create offsite backups. You can synchronize online storages with your local computer and have up-to-date backup files on all computers you want. To utilize the Amazon S3 storage just add necessary settings and point out both the bucket and directory, where the archive files will be sent to. Same with Google Drive - you can define separate folder for your backups and have direct access to them from any computer.

To start working with Dropbox just indicate your Dropbox login details, define a folder to keep backups there. After this the extension will make remote backup and send files to Dropbox folder. It’s possible to share folder on Dropbox or Box.com and provide access to developers to restore the system.

Make automatic backups

You can make onsite and offsite automatic Magento backups on schedule: daily, weekly, monthly or once. Just adjust the cron scheduler so that the program would automatically start making backup on the scheduled day and time. You can create as many tasks as you want and change the information saved in automatic backup task anytime you want. Besides, it`s possible to select cron settings for each individual profile. Cron scheduler task can include sending backup files to a remote server too. In other words cron makes cloud Magento backup the same way as it is made without cron. The extension can send an email notification about the successful completion of the automated backup.

Use multistep functinality

Multistep functionality allows dividing the backup process into steps. This option will be useful for those users on whose server little time is set for script execution – it will be enough to set the time for one step less than the time allowed on the server for script execution.

Additionally, Time based multistep option allows not to split files into parts while uploading them to the cloud; this means that files can be now uploaded to the cloud server as a whole. This option has one exception – users won’t be able to use the cloud application “Box”, as it doesn’t support the required functionality. All the rest cloud applications support time limited upload.

Multistep option can be enabled separately for both manual and cron backups. It’s implemented so in order to allow disabling multistep for cron. When this option is enabled backup process lasts a little longer than without it – some servers can be adjusted so that more time and resources will be allocated for tasks executed by cron.

Easily delete backup files

Deleting of old backup files can be set up in two ways: a) deleting on the expiry of several days; b) deleting of the earlier backups if the total number of backups exceeds the determined number. Herewith user can chose either delete all the backup data completely, including the file on the server, log files and files on the cloud server; or delete only the backup record, but leave all the backup files.

Be aware of specific requirements

*Due to large popularity and server loads Dropbox and box.com have specific restrictions regarding file size and number of calls:

  • file size should not be too large so Dropbox and box.com servers will not be overloaded – that is why our extension automatically breaks backup file into smaller pieces of 100 Mbytes.
  • DropBox space limit – they provide you with some free space but you can easily extend your capacity signing up for their plans.
  • 5,000 API calls per day for each key – make sure you don't do this many backups within one day :). However if your site is very large - let us know in advance and we will check possible server load to define if this will work for you well.

There are some requirements to your server where Magento Shop is hosted (all these requirements are common for Magento but still we need to bring them up again):

  • Free space on the server not less than the size of the backup
  • Zlib support in PHP. You will need to configure PHP with zlib, but don't worry - most Magento servers have this feature on.

If a folder size on the server is more than 500 Mb we insistently recommend you to allocate it to the separate backup profile, as on servers with the low website memory the backup process can be suddenly terminated.

The Backup Extension by MagePlace supports Magento Community editions 1.4.X, 1.5.X, 1.6.X, 1.7.X, 1.8.X, 1.9; Magento Enterprise editions 1.9.X, 1.10.X, 1.11.X, 1.12.X, 1.13.X, 1.14.

Note - due to security restrictions we've limited options to send offsite backups to your servers and cloud services and limited automatic backup settings. If you have any questions - please do not hesitate to contact our support team with any pre-sales questions.
  • Q: What is the difference from the native Magento backup?

    A: Unlike the native Magento backup tool you may set MagePlace Backup extension to store your Backup files offsite on a separate server with easy and prompt access, protecting your backups both from software and hardware failures. Our Magento extension allows you to save your time by scheduling tasks and run automatic backups of files and DB so that they can run in your absence.

  • Q: Where can I store my backups?

    A: With our Magento Backup extension you can:

    • save a backup file to your local server;
    • send the archived copy to a distant could storage.

    Currently the extension works with Google Drive, Box.com,Dropbox and Amazon online storages, FTP and SFTP protocols.

  • Q: Can I do backups automatically?

    A: Our Magento Backup extension includes the cron scheduler which allows carrying out the complete site backup as well as only parts of files, required databases or tables according to the specified schedule.

  • Q: How does the cron works?

    A: Cron is used to schedule definite tasks for our Magento backup extension. Cron works using the predefined settings. You can do the following:

    • create unlimited quantity of tasks;
    • change the information saved in a backup task at any time;
    • select cron settings for each individual profile;
    • setup a cron task to send backup files to local or cloud server;

    The service is automatic and requires no further intervention by the user.

  • Q: How to setup cron correctly?

    A: While indicating cron parameters take into account that the value in the "Generate Schedules Every" field must be smaller or equal to the value in the "Schedule Ahead for" field; value in the "Missed if Not Run Within" field - bigger or equal to the value in the "Generate Schedules Every" field. And with all of these cron settings on server should be set so that Magento cron would run once N minutes, where N should be smaller or equal to the value in the "Generate Schedules Every" field.

  • Q: Are there any special requirements?

    A: The requirements for this extension are the same as for Magento in general, namely:

    • Free space on the server not less than the size of the backup;
    • Zlib support in PHP.

    If you'd like to use 3rd party online storages, please, note the restrictions which these resources have:

    • limited file size;
    • space limit (additional storage space may be purchased);
    • 5,000 API calls per day for each key.

    If a folder size on the server is more than 500 Mb we insistently recommend you to allocate it to the separate backup profile, as on servers with the low website memory the backup process can be suddenly terminated.

  • Q: Which Magento versions support this extension?

    A: The Magento Backup Extension by MagePlace supports Magento Community versions 1.4.X, 1.5.X, 1.6.X, 1.7.X, 1.8.X, 1.9 and Magento Enterprise editions 1.9.X, 1.10.X, 1.11.X, 1.12.X, 1.13.X, 1.14.

  • Q: Why "Backup progress" doesn't get refreshed / Loading Mask doesn't hide?

    A: This happens because the server has limited time to run scripts. To avoid this issue use backup profiles in our extension to break the DB backup process into several smaller parts.

  • Q: [ERROR] Extension doesn't have permissions to change memory limit.

    A: Your server doesn`t meet the appropriate Magento requirements. As the extension tries to increase the memory limit for archiving or back up fragmentation, the error appears. To fix this, follow the steps:

    1. Increase the server memory to a minimum of 512 Mb;
    2. Split backup profile into multiple parts to limit the eventual archive for each separate profile.
  • Q: [ERROR] MySQL server has gone away

    A: This error doesn't stop the backup process. The notification is displayed because of MySQL server settings, as they do not completely satisfy Magento requirements. We'll recommend you to optimize MySQL configuration for Magento: ask the hosting provider to change in the MySQL configuration files on the server /etc/my.cnf max_allowed_packet = 1M to 16M or try to upgrade MySQL to the latest version because some things it's handled differently in the latest versions. If you can't change MySQL settings and don't want to see the note, you can split backup profile into several smaller parts.

  • Q: I have less than 512 and going to next level host plan is too expensive. What can I do?

    A: You can break down the backup into several backup profiles, so each profile would backup small part of the site (preferably less than 100 Mbytes). If some files or tables are over 100 Mbytes - make separate profile to back them up.

  • Q: My backup is divided into small parts on dropbox. How do I merge them together to restore?

    A: You can use the Merge script, which can be found in your members area.

  • Q: ERROR displayed: Invalid URI supplied when trying to send files to Dropbox. What should I Do?

    A: The path indicated in the backup profile settings in the Directory field on the cloud server (e.g., Dropbox Directory) cannot contain spaces:
    Dropbox Directory: MageplaceBackup – CORRECT
    Dropbox Directory: Mageplace Backup – INCORRECT

  • Q: How to restore the website from a backup file?

    A: 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. See step by step instruction.

MagePlace Backup

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.
