Making Dev Easy
Spending less time writing code means you will be able to focus more on site administration. Joomla 3.0 focuses on having a scheduled backup of your site's earlier version to keep a full and consistent record of your site's content. Joomla! Documentation, the part of the Joomla site dedicated to answer your coding and installation questions, suggests you create a backup of your site and this can even be done remotely through apps when working with some of the best cloud hosting providers out there.
