    Nothing special if you will compare this process to backup of any other script.

    Make a dump of database, then download all files.

    It will be a good idea to pack all files to an archive on server and download it then.

      Another though - contact your hosting provider. Maybe you have full daily backups you can easily use without any problems. But I won't rely on that much - I always have problems with backups by hosting provider

      Thanks for your input!
      Yes, packing all files to an archive on serer and download that is what I am currently doing. But not sure how much the archive file size will be in the future for an active site with some active users.
      Agreed with the hosting daily...  more
