    I'm sorry if this is kicking a dead horse, but I need to ask.

    I want to make manual backups of:
    - The wordpress files
    - The database

    I don't trust apps to do this for me, so I want to make a manual backup everytime I make changes.

    I have 5 sites to manage...

    It's hard to give specific instructions as the process (what you click) is specific to your host and software if you use any

    Files - I use bluehost, I just log on to my file manager and select all the files and folders for my WP installation and click archive, this makes a copy of all the files and puts them in a .zip archive which I can download

    You could also use an FTP program (like filezilla) to navigate to your host server and do the same

    For database I just log onto phpmyadim on Bluehost and log into the appropriate DB (since I have many sites) and click export
