    Hi

    When making a manual backup using FTP what is the best transfer type to use? Auto, Binary or ASCII? I could not see it in the codex.

    Are there any issues with file corruption?

    I also make a backup of the database using phpmyadmin

    Whilst I am on the subject whats the best free plugin for backing up.

    Thanks
    Terry

    Thanks for a quick response Krishna. Do you use backwpup?

    Any thoughts on transfer type?

    I ask as I also use Joomla and everyone uses Akeeba backup and downloads the compressed files in binary mode.

    I am new to WordPress and there seems to be so many backup plugins I am a little lost to which is the best!

    :)

    -Try using the first plugin I linked to above.
    -Sorry, I don't use Joomla.
    -Review this section for the format.
