Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting and importing WordPress files, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8 Essential Training.
…As noted earlier in the course, WordPress stores all this…site's posts, pages, and other info safely in a database.…So you never have to worry, right?…Because nothing, ever goes wrong. Well, in the real world, things do happen.…Servers crash, data gets corrupted, web hosts go offline.…It's best to be safe and know how to take control of your WordPress Data.…In this chapter, we'll examine two ways…to do just that.…One method outside of WordPress, and in this lesson, one method built right in.…
WordPress includes tools for both exporting and importing its data.…You'll find them handily stored right under the Tools menu.…Let's take a look at Export first.…Now you have the option of exporting all the…data, or just the posts, or just the pages.…Let's try it out with the Export All Content option.…So once it's downloaded, I'm going to open it up in Finder.…Which we see here in the Downloads folder.…And, as you can see, WordPress gives it the name of the site as well as the date.…
Which is great for keeping track of backups on a regular basis.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
