Backup your WordPress website using Backup Wizard
Everyone uses a different website hosting company to host their website. Over the years I have logged into many control panels (CPanels) for different website hosting packages. I find that one specific style of CPanel shows up more often than not. In the video below I will show you how to use Backup Wizard, which is a handy tool to backup your website and keep a local copy of these files on your harddrive.
Note: Depending on your hosting company your CPanel might look like this but it could be missing the Backup Wizard button or your CPanel looks nothing like this. In either case I suggest contacting your hosting company and asking them how you can create a manual back up of your website so that you can keep a copy on your local harddrive.
