How much to back up, what to expect after (2 posts)

    I see there is a 2.9 version of wordpress available. I want to back up first. My data is on a cpanel. How much do I have to backup. I mean from what folder do I start?

    Also, I saw some terribly confusing video on some panel to make backup easier. It implied that after backing up, I will have other problems that will require adjustment. I see you have taken care of the plug in up date issue. What other software settings will I have to adjust?

    Thanks,
    Ellen

    The most important backup is the database backup. For the rest, you want a copy of your theme on your PC, of all your plugins and of course of files you might have edited. Personally, I only use the "export" function of WP and every other year (as a matter of speaking) I make a database backup using a backup plugin, some control panels allow you to make a database backup, some don't.
