How to manually back up the MySQL WordPress database, files and folders WP Learning Lab
In this WordPress tutorial, I will show you how to manually back up the MySQL WordPress database, files and folders. Being able to back up your website is important because you will want to do it before installing updates to WordPress themes, plugins and core files.
In addition, if you have a WordPress backup plugin, it's exactly the same as the plugin. So, if you want to minimize the vulnerabilities of your site, you can manually back up and delete the plugin.
Let's start with the WordPress backup.
There are two parts to a full backup of WordPress: first, the files and folders and then the MySQL database.
First, back up the files and folders.
Log in to your cPanel hosting account and find the file manager. Use it to open the root directory of the website you want to back up. Once the root directory is loaded, select all the files and folders in the root directory and click the Compress button in the top menu.
Choose ZIP as the compression and the root as the destination. Once the ZIP file is created, download it to your computer to keep it safe as part of your backup.
Then we save the MySQL database. Go back to your cPanel and find the PHPMyAdmin option and click on it.
In the PHPMyAdmin interface, click your database in the list on the left to open it. Then click the Export tab at the top.
You can leave the options as they are: Fast and SQL. Then click on Go. An SQL file will be downloaded which you can also keep on your computer to keep it safe as part of your full backup of WordPress.
And you're done, the full backup is complete.
