Backup WordPress

Its importand to make Backups, and so we make a backup from our wordpress.

At first we copy all files from our server to the local host:

copyI used the integrated FTP manage but you could use another FTP program too.


Now we make a dump from our database, login into your phpmyadmin, and then:


  1. Export
  2. manual to choose what database (only wordpress)
  3. if you want to backup all (more than wordpress)
  4. only wordpress
  5. compress to save store


Now hit the OK Button and download the File.

If you have to use your backup look at : wordpress backup problems with rewrite.
