Here’s the procedure and it´s so easy:

  • Login to your cPanel and Navigate to the File Manager, which should lead you to your public_html directory.
  • Locate your WordPress directory. This is the folder which you will backup. Ensure you have sufficient fre space available in your hosting account.
  • Since, you can’t download the WordPress folder in File Manager without first compressing it, click on your WordPress directory, and select Compress from the menu bar. Alternatively, right-click on the folder and choose Compress from the drop-down options menu.
  • Choose the compression type ZIP archive.
  • Click the Compress File(s) button and the server will save your compressed WordPress folder.
  • Click on the archive you just created and choose Download from the menu.
  • Choose a secure location on your hard disk and save your backup.
