the easiest way for a backup is to  make a backup of your mysql database 
via "mysqldump" and to make a backup copy of your webapps folder.

With those two components you can restore your installation within a few 
mintes (except you db-dump is several gigabytes in size, then it can 
take a little bit longer <g>)
