Step one: File Manager file Backup

First go to your file manager and located the WordPress files of your WordPress website. Ensure you are showing hidden files when you do this. Next, highlight all the files and select compress. From there, you can download the zip file of your website or just leave it in your public_html folder.

Step Two: Database Backup

Next, go to your PHPmyAdmin and select export in the database for the website you want to backup. At the bottom of export you can just select the suggested export method. Once the file has exported you can save it in a file for safe keeping.
