Native Wordpress Backup Method

The native backup format brings the crucial advantage for users: you can backup Wordpress site and database and then operate freely with its content: change, browse, modify, clone or even restore Wordpress from backup manually after making some changes, refinements or other operations.

Note: The "dump" method means that the website backup service creates a sequence of SQL commands that restores previous database content when being executed. In other words, the dump file is a sequence of SQL commands containing the basic Wordpress backup information.
