Creating a Site Backup Manually

To create a site backup, you must create a copy of the site files and a database dump.

Creating a copy of site files


Connect to the server using FTP / SFTP protocol and download site files. You can use FileZilla or any other FTP client to connect.


  1. Connect to the server via SSH.
  2. Create an archive of site files:
    tar cf archive-name.tar /site/directory/name
    The archive is saved in the root directory.
  3. Create a database dump:
    mysqldump -u'data-base' data-base -p'data-base-password' > dump-name.sql
  4. The dump is saved in the root directory.
