How do I save the entire website including databases?

How do I save the entire website including databases?I have decided to close the shop... but might want to reopen in the future?

Does saving just from the magento system is enough?

Any idea?

Re: How do I save the entire website including databases?

Hi!

 

It would be the best to make 2 separate backups:

1. Files backup

2. Database backup

 

To make files backup you can simply create a .zip or .tar.gz archive of whole store directory. If you have PuTTY you can run:

zip -r magento_backup.zip public_html/

 

replace public_html/ with your actual store folder name.

 

To make database backup run this command from PuTTY:

mysqldump -udbuser -p --routines magento_db > magento_backup.sql

 

 

replace dbuser with your actual mysql user and magento_db with your actual database name.
