Backup Your WordPress Site via cPanel

This is so easy you can do it in the time it takes to brew a mug of coffee. Here’s the procedure:

  • Login to your web host and navigate to cPanel. For most web hosts, the cPanel is usually the first page you encounter when you login

  • Navigate to the File Manager, which should lead you to your public_html or Home directory.

  • From here, just locate your WordPress directory. This is the folder you want to backup.

  • Unfortunately, you can’t download the WordPress folder in File Manager without first compressing it. Worry not though, compressing a folder needn’t be challenging.

  • Click on your WordPress directory, and select Compress from the menu bar. Alternatively, right-click on the folder and choose Compress from the drop-down options menu that appears.

  • Choose the compression type e.g. ZIP, Tar, GZIP etc from the dialog box that opens. I always go with a ZIP archive.

  • Then just hit the Compress File(s) button and wait for the process to run its course. Your server will save your compressed WordPress folder.

  • Click on the archive you just created and choose Download from the menu. Alternatively, right-click on the archive and choose Download.

  • Choose a secure location on your hard disk and save your backup. And that’s it!

If your web host uses a different control panel e.g. vDeck, Plesk, etc, you just need to locate your File Manager, and just follow the process i.e. Locate File Manager -> Locate your WordPress directory -> Compress -> Download. Repeat regularly.

I have moderate level PHP programming skills. I am also interested in merging those skills inside of the WordPress app. With their advanced responsive design themes and many other functions it seems like a good idea. I have tried loading some PHP plug-ins in WP – but I don't seem to get them to do more than basics.

Can anybody help me on how I can get started working with PHP/MySQL inside of the WordPress app?
