If you have ssh access to your home directory then try rsync to backup files and folders to a local drive

I use rsync for files : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-rsync-to-sync-local-and-remote-directories-on-a-vps

and Mysql-Workbench for database backups: http://www.mysql.com/products/workbench/

I’m running them manually as required at the moment. Just starting to automating it.
