Can I use Tools-Export to backup my site? (3 posts)

    I have been doing regular, full cPanel backups. It appears that WordPress's Tools-Export might also be an effective way to backup the site. Is such a backup practical and feasible? What are your backup suggestions?

    Thanks for your help,

    I have two sites: http://www.slingingthebull.com and http://www.1stspanish.com.

    Thank you for the link. It's got a lot of good information.

    I find the Tools=>Export option to be interesting because it makes clear exactly what you are saving--content, etc. Hostgator assures me that full-cPanel backups save everything, but I simply want to be sure.

    Thanks again for your help,
