[resolved] Where is "Post" content stored? (which files?) (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I am looking in my cPanel backup of my WordPress blog where the CONTENT of individual Posts would be stored, if it is at all.

    Does WordPress embed Post content into files that can be seen in cPanel backups?

    Thanks.

    Nope. All the content (posts, comments, Pages, settings) is stored in the database, not in files.

    Edit. Which means a backup of the files will NOT have any of the content. You need to backup the database in order to save your content.
