Software Programs to Back up WordPress

Locate FTP Accounts in Your Control Panel

Go to your control panel and navigate to File Manager. Find FTP Accounts and click on it.

FTP

On this page, you will create an FTP account, so fill in the necessary details, that is, your Log In and Password. Leave the Directory blank because you will be using the default one. Click Create FTP Account to successfully create your account.

Utilize CoreFTP to Copy and Paste Files

Once your FTP account is created, click Configure FTP Client from your account details row.

Configure your FTP

You can use the software CoreFTP to back up the entire public_html folder. This means you will connect through FTP and copy or backup WordPress to your local drive.

FTP Configuration

Download the FTP Configuration File and then go to CoreFTP. Click Site Manager at the top and select Import and then CoreFTP.

Choose the FTP Configuration File you downloaded. Enter your FTP password if it is required.

Create a new folder in your c:/ drive for your WordPress backup. Go back to your FTP program and do a refresh on the left side of the screen. You will see the backup folder you created on your local c:/ drive.

Find the public_html folder on the right side of your screen and then click on it to enter the folder. Select all the files inside it, right click, and choose Select All and then Download. Allow several minutes for the copying of the backup WordPress to your local folder to complete.
