How Do I Backup WP Blogs

I know this is a silly question. But I want to know how to back up a WP blog and is it absolutely necessary?

Thanks for you responses.

    I used to use this plugin:

    WordPress › WP-DB-Backup WordPress Plugins

    Though it's been a while since I dabbled in WP. It allows you to save your DATABASE data, to a local file, that can be injected easily at a later time. It doesn't back up your "physical" files on the server, though!

    If I remember correctly, you can opt to let the plugin mail you the table backups on a daily/weekly/... basis.

    You could set up a cron job (automated job) to do this automatically.

    I suggest taking a look at this page:
