    Hey, I have been using cpanel for a while there it just makes complete backs up for me and I just give that out when I am selling sites..

    Recently I have gotten a dedicated windows server 2003.. with plesk

    How can I make backups of plesk sites and sell that to buyers without any of them running into problems...

    My sites are 99% of the time Wordpress sites and they use a database.. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    that depends on whether they are using plesk as well.
    The easiest that would work universally would be to download the folder with all your public files - export your .sql file - zip it all up and hand it over.
    This way it can be installed manually via FTP on any host no matter what control panel.

    There's a difference - depending on what you have installed.
    Its possible to have plesk + myssql
    If you have it with MSSQL then when the person imports it to a mysql system? They have to select mssql compatibility option in the import selection in phpmyadmin

    Just tell the buyer the type of database. phpmyadmin has several import options
