What is a JPA file?

Jpa file extension has Akeeba Backup Archive file type, developed by Akeeba, which is associated with the "backup files" category.

These are archived backup files generated by the Akeeba software, which was designed for securing websites and backing up website information. Typical JPA files can contain a part or whole website backup copy including the uploaded files, restoration scripts, and files. JPA files are similar to files in the PKZIP format. JPA format can be used as an alternative to the .ZIP format. The JPA format does not include a checksum for all archived files; this allows the program to reduce the processing overhead during archiving procedures. This feature makes the JPA format faster and less hungry for hardware resources.
