As a web developer, you might develop a site locally on your own computer or on a test server but at some point, you need to move it to where it will be accessible by the public. Sometimes you just need to move a site from one server to another.
There are several methods of doing this, but probably the most fool-proof is the solution provided by Akeeba Backup. Akeeba's tools take care of the backup and restore process for you!
