I have been using Akeeba to backup my sites and it's very good.
I've recently installed in on quite a busy site, users are regularly logging in and out of the front and back end, and making content changes.
Can I simply run the Akeeba backup process as normal in the admin area, or should I take any action before this?
I'm thinking things such as logging users out of my site, or making the site temporarily unavailable? Should I allocate a certain window of time during the week for a backup and inform users not to login or make changes during this time?
Often there are a number of users logged into the admin area simultaneously, however there is only one super admin (me).
I don't know if it makes any difference that there are database changes occurring during the backup process? I'm sure the developer took this into consideration but I couldn't find anything in the documentation.
