Backing Up Blog Content?

I've been using the cpanel "backups" feature under "Files" to back up my Wordpress database. Today I happened to unpack one of the files and looked inside, only to see the sql was only there to do some basic set-up. Nothing in there showed my actual blog content gets backed up, no categories, no posts, et cetera.

 

So what is the facility we should be using to back up the actual blog content itself? I tried a forum search but didn't see anything relevant.

 

Thanks!

On a related note, assuming there's nothing under cpanel for doing this, I happen to use DBVisualizer for numerous database operations and it has a wonderful database backup utility. All I would need is the direct connect information to hit my blog database and log in remotely. Is that information readily available?

 

Many thanks!

Okay, and if I don't have a dedicated IP address for my system I'd have to set that up case by case, I imagine? Do you know whether it uses the default MySQL port (I think it's 3306) or a custom one?

 

I write a lot of database access code in Java and Groovy and am thinking of setting up some databases on a site other than localhost to test things out more conveniently.
