How to Create a Backup of Mambo?
In order to backup your Mambo application you have to:
Step 1: Backup all your web site files.
Backup all the files and folders inside your Mambo directory. You can do that by downloading them via your favourite FTP client. You can find our comprehensive FTP tutorial here.
Step 2: Backup/Export your database
Then you have to export your Mambo database. You can do that by using PHPMyAdmin. Please check our tutorial on how to backup/restore MySQL database in order to create a backup of your Mambo database.
Please, make sure that you choose the correct database which your Mambo application uses.
If you are unsure about the Mambo database name, you will be able to find it in the mambo_folder/configuration.php file. You can view this file through cPanel -> File manager. The line where the database name is entered is:
$mosConfig_db = 'username_mamb1';
Instead of username_mamb1 you will see the actual database name for your installation.
