I admit I'm just 3 weeks new to WP but have spend many hours to setup a site with pages and no blogs/comments. Unfortunately, I've had to delete and re-install as number of times due to "white screen of death". I still do not fully understand what is causing this - but suspect an issue with a plugin.
Anyway, I would like not to keep re-doing my work every time I get a problem - so I would like to understand how to back-up and restore my site.
I'm lacking a basic understanding of where (directories and files) my sites configuration (menus, widget setup, pages etc.) are stored. I would like to be able to get a backup of these and if/when I get a crash I would like to be able to reinstall WP and then restore my site files.
Can anyone give me some directions?
