Backing up files is one of the most important things that many website owners often overlook.

They pay less attention to the importance of backing up the files on their website. I have encountered errors while playing on my own website. I am a person who enjoys learning new things and at that time I was trying to play around with my website to make it look more attractive.

I've been playing around with codes like PHP and its friends and the results ...

..... my blog is more destroyed, hahaha not more interesting, but more makes my eyes look sore.

In all honesty at the time I was very confused, backup files also not there and my second mistake is tinkering with not seeing the past. I played around in the afternoon with where my blog visitors were busy at the time.

As a result, I have to keep my laptop for about 5 hours to get my blog back to looking like it did before.

How to Backup WordPress Files Using Cpanel

You really should back up your website regularly to avoid things not considered due to mistakes made by the website owner itself (like in my case), mistakes in the hosting you are using, or because it has been hacked by an irresponsible party damaged files are desired.

"Prevention is better than cure", perhapsThis saying must be used by all website owners. One way is to back up the website file. How to extend non-length files on a WordPress platform website:

1. Back up the database

There are two important components that you need to back up, namely the database and the wp content file. First, let's back up the database first.

We can back up the database via phpmyadmin or use WordPress plugins like BackWPup.

The first way: back up the database with phpmyadmin

1. Sign in to your Cpanel account.

2. Then choose phpMyAdmin on the menu Databases.

3. An indicator will appear in the phpmyadmin menu as shown in the following figure. Select the database (where your website is located) that you want to back up, then select the tab Export.

4. Then click the button Go to download the database file.

The second way: use a plugin

2. After the installation of the backup plug-in has been completed. Go to the menu Dashboard and just click the button Download database backup to download your website database.

2. Save the wp-content file

After the database backup is complete, the second step is to back up the wp content file.

I usually back up wp content files through cpanel and for some of my websites that use vps I prefer to use FTP software like Filezilla.

1. Sign in to your Cpanel account.

2. Choose File manager on the menu Files.

3. The display will appear as shown below. Please choose Go to continue.

4. Then select wp-content. You cannot download it directly, you have to compress it first. Please click the button Compress which is located at the top right.
