    on my XP system, I have a local wordpress system set up using XAMPP.

    I changed over one of my online wordpress systems and am still fighting problems trying to get into the system using wp-admin. I can access the site OK but not through wp-admin at all.

    so before I change over to wordpress 3.4 on my local machine, I want to backup the wordpress DB and files, can someone point me to a procedure to do this for a local wp site?

    don’t want to be stuck with potential problems with 3.4 when I can do a backup and restore back if need be.



    If you use PHPmyAdmin, you can go into the database and hit EXPORT to back it up. That will save the whole database into a text-based .sql file, that you can use to import (restore) on another computer.
