Backup via FileZilla is also a simple technique and is yet another way to create a backup of your website.
Technically as we have seen in the previous method, all we need to do is take a backup of the WordPress folder available on the server.
To do this, you can use an FTP client such as FileZilla.
Before you start, on your local you will have to create a folder which can download your WordPress backup.
Next, open FileZilla and provide your credentials.
Once you have connected to the server, navigate to your WordPress installation.
Your WordPress installation may contain a few hidden files.
So ensure your FileZilla shows you the hidden files as well.
In FileZilla, you can use option Server Force showing hidden files
Once this is done, select all the files you wish to download and press the download option.
This will take some time to complete.
After this, I will speak more about taking backup of your database.
The database is one of the critical pieces of your website. It contains all of your contents.
If for some reason your database gets corrupted or you lose your data, then it is practically impossible to retrieve your website.
To back up the database, you will have to log in to database management panel on your web host. In most cases, this will be phpAdmin.
Click on the left side and choose the database you want to backup. You can also check the name of the database from the wp-config.php file.
You can click on the database which will show you a list of tables available.
Once you can see the tables, next click on the Export option.
