How Do I Backup My Databases?

How do I backup my databases?

MySQL databases can be backed up by doing the following:

  1. Go to 'backup', under the 'Site Management' header in Cpanel.

  2. Underneath where it says "Download a SQL DB Backup", click on the database name that you wish to backup

  3. Select a place and filename for you to save on to your local computer

  4. Do NOT attempt to open this file with Winzip.

Remember, this only backs up the databases, you will need to make a separate backup for any files!
