FTP uploads take a lot of time, proportional to the number of files, not just their size. A small site consists of 6,000+ files. Why wait when you can only upload a two files? Upload Kickstart and your backup archive and restore your site in less than a third of the time!
Neat and flexible
Supporting direct file writing and FTP upload, Akeeba Kickstart can work on virtually every server. And when you're done restoring your site it will even remove itself and the backup archive.
Smooth and stealthy
Don't let the world see the restoration page while you're restoring your site! Kickstart's Stealth Mode will redirect everybody, except yourself, to a static HTML page until your site is restored and ready for prime time.
Amazon S3 integration
Download the backup archives directly from Amazon S3 to your site. No need for time consuming uploads and downloads through your computer.
Download from URLs
Download backup archives directly from a URL. If it's web accessible, it's Kickstart-ready!
Install your favourite CMS
You can use Kickstart to download and install your favourite CMS, be it Joomla, WordPress, Drupal or anything else that comes in a ZIP file.
