    Hello

    I am trying to back up a wordpress site so I can replace it with a css/html site.
    I have found a plugin that is supposed to do it, but is there another way of doing it?
    Does the plugin also back up the databases? because i understand that wordpress is database-driven and databases need to be backed up too??

    I have come up with another solution on my own. would it work if i simply rename the index.php to something else, and then upload the css/html files? homepage would be index.html

    i have great experience with Backupwordpress(google it) i never had no problems with that plugin and you can get the files emailed to you.

    BackUpWordPress will back up your entire site including your database

    I'm not a Wordpress expert, so I can't tell if your solution will work.

    For WordPress backup, I am using Backup Buddy. It backup everything including database and even non-WordPress files if you do full backup. However, it is not free.
