    Hi, so, the company I started working in wants me to change the layout/overall design of their website and they gave me access to the cPanel of the website; and I can tell that the developers used wordpress.

    But before I do that, of course, I need to set up a back-up where I can do experiments or at least be able to have a rollback option.

    The problem is, there is no backup button here:

    Also, even if I downloaded the files manually, how can I run the website on my own computer?
    I've exported the database and it's over 80MB and importing only allows around 10mb.

    I use xampp apache and WindowsXP 32-bit (cause other computers not available)

    Ultimately, I want to run the whole website in my PC

    Please help provide me some insights it would be very much appreciated :)

    Your hosting provider has disable backup options for your account and due to that it's not showing in your cPanel.


    And regarding xampp, You will have to increase your post_max_size and upload_max_filesize in php.ini file on your local pc so that xampp will able to import your large database

    Hello :)

    Some users prefer to setup a development version of their website by creating an Addon domain name in cPanel or by creating a separate cPanel account. It's an alternative to consider if you prefer to avoid setting up a web server on your personal computer.

    Thank you.
