LazyDbBackup is an evolution of LazyBackup created by Stefan Granholm. It is distributed under the GNU/GPL (2 or higher) license.

Its role is to trigger a backup of the MySQL database of a Joomla! site and to send it by e-mail to the address defined, and at the chosen rate.

 This extension, initially only in English for Joomla! 1.5, has been internationalised (English, French) and also adapted for use on Joomla! 1.6 sites, and has evolved with each version of Joomla!

It is now delivered with language files in German, translated by Nathalie Laurent, also in Spanish thanks to Jorge Ferreira from jorguito.com, in Italian thanks to Giovanni Roli, in Dutch by Eric Swinnen, in Slovenian by Ervin Bizjak, in Turkish by Mehmet TAŞ. I would like to thank these people for their participation!

The installation is the classic one of a Joomla! extension, requiring then a parameter setting and an activation of the plug-in.

Among the settings, one allows you to disable sending by email, which, in combination with a choice of specific backup folder (preferably inaccessible by URL), allows for example to store on the server the backup files too large to be transmitted by email, and to retrieve them later by FTP.

Since 2016, as some servers no longer offer MySQL management but only MySQLi or PDO, there are two versions of LazyDbBackup (compatible with Joomla! 3.x) using these methods of accessing the database tables. In principle, the PDO version is the one to use.

These two versions do not delete the backup file after sending it by email: do not forget to regularly delete old files or to use LDBChecker (see below).
If it generates errors, you should test the MySQLi version.
