    You can use wp db backup plugin.
    I think you can also back up by saving your mysql database in your web hosting.
    If you are using blogger, then you can use the export blog function which enables you to download all the posts in 1 file.
    Hope that helped.

    If you have a hosting account with CPanel you can do a back-up via that any time you like.

    Log in to your CPanel and you'll see the back-up icons in the Files section.

    Click on Backups and set it up from there. This will generrate a zip file for you do download with the back-up of your site.

    Various plug-ins also for you to check out here from the Wordpress site:
    WordPress › Search for backup « WordPress Plugins

    Yours,

    Andy.

    Wordpress offer a free export tool under tools in your wordpress dashboard. There are also premium plugins that fully backup your entire site so you can move to a new host or domain easily without breaking your links
    Most people only backup there database which does not fully backup your site
    There is also a wordpress plugin that backups your seo settings as well which is important

    There are lots of wp plug-ins available. You can also check on settings, Export your blog into backup all the comments and posts. About the design or template go to layout, then Edit HTML and click the DL link.

    regularly make a copy of your database from your host to your computer, once a week will do.

    If you want to fully backup your site you would need to use a wordpress plugin or th export feature under tools in your wordpress dashboard if you are using wordpress
    Most site owners only backup thier databases and may not be aware that they are not backing up thier uploads(images), plugins, seo settings etc

    Microsoft Word 2010 also has a blog section. it may not be useful for backup, but it's quite convenient for you to upload or edit articles.

      I always just load up Filezilla and copy my entire public_html folder. That way I backup all of my squeeze pages and everything.

      Then backup your wordpress database through phpmyadmin.

    There are two important elements for a Wordpress backup:

    * Database - this is where your post content etc. is
    * Wp-content folder - this is where your theme design and any plugins you've installed go.

    I backup the database with WP-DB backup as others have mentioned, and then the wp-content folder simply through FTP, though your cPanel backup would work too.

    Or you can get something like Flip Me Clone (which I've just started to use) as it does both elements for you in one and makes it easier to transfer

    I use the "Wordpress Backup to Dropbox" plugin. It backs up the content and the SQL database automatically to a Dropbox account.
