I have just done a database backup in admin but I now want to do a manual backup. Can you tell me where do I find this in admin?

To back up, find phpMyAdmin in the hosting control panel and choose “export” from the menu bar. In many cases you can stick with the “Quick” option, but, if you have more than one database in the same MySQL install, for example, choose the “Custom” option and find the relevant database in the drop-down list. Unless you know what you’re doing, leave the other options alone. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click “Go”. A dump of the database will be downloaded and you can store it with the files you downloaded earlier or somewhere else

  • Can I copy this dump and store it on my computer? I have just done the backup. It now says : gz (The archive can be uncompressed with 7-Zip on Windows systems) Do I just click on this and it will allow me to save it somewhere on my computer? – Glamorous Hairstyles Sep 4 '14 at 3:47
