Error Message

When I tried to do zip arhive of my htdocs directory with Monsta FTP (inner hosting file manager) - I always receive message "An unknown error occurred during archive. Could you please explain - why I have this problem? Thank you!

Not possible on free hosting

The online file manager is not suited for large tasks like that. Instead, please download and use FTP software such as FileZilla.

Thank you! The only problem is that in htdocs there are a lot of small files after WordPress setup. And with FTP it will take infinite time. Is there some optimal way how to copy WordPress installation (do backup, in fact)?

Just start the backup with FileZilla, and do something else (Edit a video, eat a meal, etc) while you wait for it to finish. Backing up manually is the recommended way to do this.
