The e-commerce.

Can I create a backup and will it store the images as well?

You can FTP your files to your local machine and then use PHPMYADMIN on your hosting control panel to make a database backup to also store on your local machine. This will give you everything you need in case something happens to your live site.

FTP is a somewhat laborious way to backup, hence my add-on http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8387 which will backup all your files & images with one click.

 

Of course neither of those methods will backup your database, you need to do that separately, best done with Database Backup Manager and/or Auto Backup Database

I hate to disagree with you Sam, but why install two contributions when the tools to do the back up are already available to the OP ? Makes no sense unless the OP plans to make frequent back ups, only then would it be worth installing another contribution.

phpMyAdmin is hardly a convenient or simple method and is an somewhat daunting to many new users.

 

The default osC database manager is poor at best and needs replacing anyway

 

The install for those I mentioned is very short and easy.

 

If the method requires many extra steps, as yours does, it will inevitably be skipped, leading to regrets if its quick an easy that's much less likely. ;)
