[How-To Guide] Back-Up WordPress Database By Using PHPMyAdmin

WordPress Blog’s use MySQL Database to store whole information like your blog posts, comments, etc. If you’re a Professional Blogger then you’re constantly updating your blog with at least 4 blog posts a day and this data directly stored in MySQL database which you don’t want to lose at any condition, so its necessary for you to keep up the regular backups of your data to protect it from any loss or damage. Already I had covered a lot on database from installing to deleting a database by using PHPMyAdmin. Now, this post focus on “how-to back-up the WordPress Database By Using PHPMyAdmin”.

  • Shashank

    its good but it wont work when u need to transfer your site from one domain to another in that case What would u suggest Thanks in adv

    • @Shashank: first back-up your site and download that data by using any ftp client (i prefer filezilla), and upload it
      the second way is that use a better hosting company (i prefer hostgator) they will do all the things for you without messing up anything
      the third way is that i will come up with an article on this 🙂
      Still not publish the manual installation of wordpress – in new year your wish get fulfilled
