If you have the "Akeeba" Backup or the "Joombak" component here's how. Log into the administrator,

click on the Component dropdown, select "Akeeba backup" or "Joompak", Find the "BACKUP NOW" button

and click it. Wait for the backup to complete --- it will take some time depending on how many pdf's and

images you have on your site.

Don't forget to choose a section and category when you publish a new article. If you don't it will end up in the Uncategorized category. The section and category dropdowns are located below the text box in the editor when you're editing in the frontend.

Don't forget that there is an option to create pdf's out of your pages using one of the 3 icons that can optionally be displayed on a page. This is set up in the Article Manager under the Parameter tabs to the right.
