What is the best way to back up your wordpress data.
I am using hostgator for my hosting and they provide backup service. It is not automated due to bigger size of my hosting account I have to e-mail them like once a week to do my back.
On sending e-mail to hostgator they normally complete the full back up and store that in my cpanel which I can easily download for my records as well.
I had a detailed chat with hostgator before relying on this as my primary backup and they confirmed that it backs up full wordpress including pictures, comments, posts, theme etc.
Some times you get confuse when you see lots of paid back up plugins.
What are you thoughts? Am I backing up properly?
Thanks for you help in advance.
