    I’ve been tasked with backing up a site and exporting the database to a PC.
    Any pointers on how i can achieve this? There are a few issues…

    1 – The current host has done bust, so is not contactable – servers due to go off imminently.

    2 – New host (swgfl) will not take responsibility for any damage – they insist that the site is fully backed up before transfer. The primary school concerned HAS to use the South West Grid For Learning…

    3 – The wordpress code for the site has not been upgraded for several years (same for plugins) and i was unable to install “backup wordpress 2.2.4”
    I am reluctant to try to do backups while the site is not backed up…

    I have exported the site (dashboard/tools/export) but don’t know where/how to back up the database to my PC. Also guess i need to back up the theme? – Dont know where this option is – they use 2010

    I have tried to import the site to my test site you gave us as part of the course, but i am unable to do this. Any ideas?

    Hi ,

    Try this plugin for moving/restoring wordpress websites http://ithemes.com/purchase/backupbuddy/.

    Unfortunately the training websites are locked down so you can’t import into them :)
