In the Magento admin panel, there are a few options for backing up your system. This can be found under Systems -> Tools -> Backups


There are three options. System Backup both your database and your entire web folder. Database and Media Backup will backup your database and the media directory, while Database Backup you simply backup your database.

You could also do a manual backup of your database, from the commandline. For more information on backing up MySql, check out:

Hey thanks.

I’ve used this function before, any ideas how I could store the backup offserver?
