  1. Log into your PHP-Nuke administative interface.
     
  2. click on backup db in admin menuFrom the main administrative page, look through the Administration Menu and click on the Backup DBicon.
     
  3. save file popup menuThis brings up a window with the choice to either Save or Open File. Click Save to download the file to your local machine. The name of the file will be Save. Be sure to save it in a secure place on your machine.

    That is all there is to backing up your database! Be sure to do it on a regular basis, whether it be weekly, monthly, or any other timeframe you need. This will help you recover lost data in the case of accidental loss.
