In this article we want to suggest a simple way to make Quick Start package for Joomla without any 3rd party extension like Akeeba Backup. So this is the manual:
1 Make a copy of your website folder
2 Delete configuration.php file from project and also empty unnecessary folders like tmp,cache,logs
3 Copy installation folder from Joomla installation package to root of project
4 in installation\sql\mysql path there are two file with name "joomla.sql" and "sample_data.sql". we need to re-make these files so open phpMyAdmin and select your database, then click on [export] tab. now select Custom mode.
5 To make new joomla.sql :
5-1) Deselect Data column and be sure that all Structure be selected.
5-2) Select "Disable foreign key checks"
5-3) Select "Add DROP TABLE / VIEW / PROCEDURE / FUNCTION / EVENT / TRIGGER statement" and also "IF NOT EXISTS "
5-4) Click on Go button to make SQL file and move it in folder mysql (step 4) instead of joomla.sql
6 To make sample_data.sql :
6-1) Deselect Structure and select Data. Be sure that all Data rows be selected.
6-2) Select "Disable foreign key checks"
6-3) Select "Add DROP TABLE / VIEW / PROCEDURE / FUNCTION / EVENT / TRIGGER statement" and also "IF NOT EXISTS "
6-4) Click on Go button to make SQL file and move it in folder mysql (step 4) instead of sample_data.sql
7 In final step we need a tiny modification for both two new files. So open them in an editor like Notepad ++. Then replace all tables prefix to #__ (tables prefix is something like yau7q_) and save the files.
Now you have a Quick Start Package and can test it!
