Newby to all things wordpress! I’ve backed up my db following the instructions at http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database.
I’m confused about backing up my site. In C-panel, I assume I go to File Manager? I have a choice of directory to open – “Home”, “Web Root (public_html/www)”, “Public FTP Root (public_ftp)” or “Document Root for:(my website address)”. When opening any of these, the folders within all seem the same, so does it matter which of these directories I choose?
Once selected, I can locate my blog folders in two main folders, the first named “public_html” the second named “www” does it matter which I choose?
Opening my blog folders in either of these main folders, I see sub folders wp-admin, wp-content and wp-includes along with various other files. Which do I choose to select to download for my back up? Do I simply “select all” or do I need to select all the various files in my first level blog folder and then open the wp-“admin”, “content” and “includes” folders seperately and download the included files and folders individually?
Sorry this is so long winded. Would appreciate a guiding hand.
