Impossible to backup or export my site

My website URL is:

impossible to backup or export my site and when i try to download any file from the database it says an unknown error has occurred

I just tried to export both databases from that account through phpMyAdmin with the “Quick” export in SQL mode, and both worked perfectly for me. Are you using our phpMyAdmin too? And which format and options did you choose?


no i tried with file manager and with a plugin. i do not know to use phpMyAdmin

These are our official backup instructions, which work with all sites of any size:
