    Backup WordPress site with only FTP, by robertuk17

    I’ve started working at a company whose site was built by a third-party developer who has disappeared. They built the site and provide hosting.

    We have an editor WP account, and FTP to the public_html directory.

    I can get the DB details from wp-config but can’t connect as presumably we’re not on the IP whitelist in the hosting.

    Given these circumstances, is there any way to do a backup of our site to restore onto our own hosting?

    I can’t install a backup plugin with an editor account, I can’t access the DB, we don’t have a cPanel account…. Our site has 100s of pages, do I have to recreate it from scratch (other than the theme which I can copy)?
