Manual backup for web files and database.

  1. Open your third-party application for FTP and connect to your hosting account. 

    Note: For those who don't have a third-party application for FTP, please navigate this link on where you can download one and how to connect to your hosting account using it: Skip the step 6 on this link.  

  2. Once connected, just drag/copy the public_html folder on your hosting account and drop/paste it to your local unit and it will serve as your backup for your web files because all web files are stored in public_html directory.

    Note: For those who have an addon domain or subdomain,you can notice that it doesn't have a public_html directory. There is no need to find for it. The root directory of your addon and subdomain is what you need. Just replicate the step 2 process in order to backup your web files for your addon or subdomain.

    Note: If you don't have a database on your website, you're already done with backing up your web files but if you have a database, please proceed to step 3.

  3. Log in to your cPanel and look for the PHPMyAdmin tool and click the icon to open it.
  4. Click the database name and look for the Export and click it. It is located at the upper level of PHPMyAdmin and in between Status and Import.
  5. After clicking the Export tool, just click the Go button and it will begin to download your current database.
  6. You're finally done to manually backup your web files and database.
