    Your q is not clear here ! What database u have to use background.... Mysql or Oracle or whatever may be coz there r various ways to take backup of the various database. One way u may do You can do your backup quite easily. Account backups can be performed using the cPanel > Backups functionality for your hosting account. If your account is not too big in size you can perform a full account backup just with one click. If the account is too large for the full automatic backup the files and the databases should be backed up separately. In this case you would need to know what your web site consist of and thus what should be backed up/restored. Usually sites are composed of files and databases. You must take care of them all if you want to have your site exactly the way it has been before.
