When you backup your #Joomla site with #AkeebaBackup, you can send the files and database that are backed up to DropBox. This is an excellent way to have a backup of your Joomla site stored off the server you host your site on. Setting up Akeeba to backup to DropBox is what today's #maintenancemonday live stream is about.





- This is a YouTube video titled "Backup Joomla Files to DropBox using Akeeba Post-Processing - 🛠 Maintenance Monday Live Stream #027."
- The video is part of a series called "Maintenance Monday" and is episode number 27.
- The host is Tim Davis, a Joomla enthusiast.
- In the video, he discusses the importance of backing up Joomla websites and focuses on using Akeeba Backup Pro for this purpose.
- Tim demonstrates how to set up a backup profile in Akeeba Backup Pro to back up only the database.
- He explains how to configure the post-processing options, including sending the backup to Dropbox.
- Tim emphasizes the benefits of storing backups off the web hosting server as a safeguard against various potential issues, such as server problems or hacking.
- He also suggests managing Dropbox folders to prevent automatic syncing to all devices for large backups.
- Tim briefly mentions a case of a company losing data due to a hacking incident and highlights the importance of offline backups for security.

Note: The transcript is quite lengthy, and I've condensed it into key bullet points to provide a summary.
