    Restore website...want to master the backup process

    wasn't sure where to post this question. I find I am relying on a host to save my back when problems arise. Any tutorials or simple steps to back up and restore websites. I know it sounds simple but once you dig in CPANEL backup you have choices that are confusing. I am looking for the simplest way to restore to a previous point.

    example say i messed with PHP or some other code and I lost access to my site via WP how do I recover to last nights back up or last weeks. Sounds simple but I never done this and want to test and master it because I am really tired of high priced hosting and poor tech support!

    would I reinstall WP fresh and restore from backup? do i do backup form cpanel? looking for step by step directions TY.....

    The best way to do a backup that I've found using cPanel is to Amazon S3. You have to pay separately for Amazon S3, but one of the rare things Amazon offers that's worth more than a bubble gum wrapper.

    Is anything ever a one click solution lol TY

    Here I thought I just log in with file manager and just download Home_HTML folder/directory and sub folders. If WP crashed log in cpanel>file manger upload the directory to home_html....Not that simple I am guessing

    I personally pull down the public_html folder and zip that up so I have all the files then download the sql file. But then again I have created my own ANT scripts to do it automatically for me. All I need to worry about is the ftp and sql login details.
