Which OS at each end? Solutions will be dependent on that information. –  John Gardeniers Jul 27 '09 at 3:17

To backup the site, just FTP in and download the data. To backup any database, you'll need to work with the hosting provider to create a backup that you can access. Some do this automatically, others this is a one off request.
