Thanks for your answers.

One last thing: it is possible to browse the backupped database offline? How to read a .sql file?
I mean browsing the tables of the database, not browsing the pages of the forum

A .sql file is a text file. It has all of the plain-text insert statements to put the data in the database.

It would be easier to install Xampp locally and use phpMyAdmin to look at the database.

here is the simple method:

Login in to cPanel > backup > create full backup & download backup.

this will backup your entire data & any host can restore it for you, just provide them full backup file.
I said this exact same thing and my post was deleted.
