I'm currently on a tight budget and can not afford automatic back-up for now.

However I'm confident that in the near future I will be able to afford an automatic service.

But for now, I've watched and reviewed all your Back-Up seminars. (good job, by the way), and I found that in

my opinion      "How to Manually Backup and Restore your WordPress Database Using phpMyAdmin" method is the easiest

for me. I do have cPanel, but I love this method.

 

Now I respectfully request for your professional opinion, Do you feel that I should memorize and adopt this method for now, until

I'm financially bless?

Yes, although remember that you want to backup both your files and your database.

Hello and good day.

 

I must retrieve what I mention earlier when I mention that, manually Backup and Restore your WordPress Database Using phpMyAdmin was easier. I did not realize you had a lesson on Backing up Your Website Using the EZ WordPress Backup Plugin. My question is does this method back up my file and database?

on this link

 

You uploaded the directory file towards the end of the lesson but

 

can I, do I, or when should I upload the database file from my computer to complete a full restore.

 

Just curious why didn't you upload the database file also at the end of the lesson, why did you  downloaded at the beginning of the lesson?   Thank You

As noted on the page - that is an old tutorial.  You should be following the recent tutorial instead.  Either the Thesis 1.8 videos or the Genesis videos (both lesson 14) are up to date.

YES THANK YOU,  I COPY AND ANCHORED A LINK ON THE PREVIOUS POST WHICH IS 

Lesson 14 – Part 5 – Restore your website from a manual backup  

 

IN THIS  LESSON YOU  FIRST DOWNLOADED THE DIRECTORY AND THEN DATABASE FILE.

AND THEN IN THE RESTORE PROCESS YOU -

 uploaded the (directory) file towards the end of the lesson but

 can I, do I, or when should I upload the database file from my computer ( FOR A full restore)

 

Just curious why didn't you upload the database file also at the end of the lesson, why did you  downloaded it to begin with  at the beginning of the lesson?

 

By the way I change my mind, I love this method best!

Boy talk about a thousand way to skin a cat!

Please no rush in receiving an answer!

Thanks again

You download the database to your local computer and that downloaded file is your backup.  When you need to restore it, you would upload it to the database.

Uploading it to the database results in a database restore.  Uploading the files results in a file restore.  Doing both of these is a full restore.
