Is the database included in a home directory backup?

If I make a backup of the entire home directory, is the IPS database included somewhere in there (if so, where?) or do I need to back it up separately?

Backup the home directory first

then go into phpmyadmin and export the entire database too

that will cover you

As above. ^_^

Generally no, the 'home directory backup' will take a backup of the filesytem (public_html and above such as logs etc) but not the database itself.

There's usually an option on that backup page to take a db backup, or an option for a complete backup.
