    just had a project where I had to make a full backup for some wordpress sites. here's what I did...made a complete wp-content backup, where the uplaoded images, themes and plugins are...also made a full database backup so the content and other settings are saved as well. there are many solutions to save these files such as uploading them on an ftp server, or even make the site email the attached files to any email address. you can also set up these plugins to upload the files in a dropbox account..everything depends on you and your needs.

    last and not least, the answer on your question:
    backing up the wp-content will save your themes, plugins and uploaded files, but without the site content. make sure to back up the whole database, including the tables of the used plugins as well! if you need help with this, feel free to pm me!

    hope it helps!
    regards,

    Hmm so where are the posts stored?

    I have only very basic knowledge of this stuff since I pretty much 'set and forget' to work on the important stuff OFFPAGE SEO!

    I screwed something up with my adsense ad placements and trying to fix it but want to back shit up in case I screw it up even more.

    WP database is stored inside mysql database. There is an easy way to backup it. You can find a database backup plugin which is able to backup wp database to your email automatically.

    Yes I have the backup plugin. I wanted to upload a backup that was working last night but it didn't seem to work.

    I have like 3 databases on my host and cos I neglected the site I forgot which database the site in stored on. How would I find out?

    Also I am still really having trouble with this stupid issue where my sidebar has gotten stuck at the bottom after trying to add an adsense banner, It seems to only be for one page but unfortunately it is one of my main keywords and have done more seo work for.

    Look in your wp-confige.php file for the site, it will have the database name in it. Look for


    // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', 'something_somethingelse');
