I tend to use phpmyadmin (or such) for the db dump and then just FTP (copy the directories) so yeah, that would seem like the way to go.

why would you get viruses?

Make sure you are using a safe ftp program.
Also, use your cpanel or what ever your hosting service provides.

You will also need the SQL data!

You can import/export data from the database directly from your admin under SYSTEM > BACKUP/RESTORE however note that for large databases this will take a long time to download, as it doesn't use any form of compression. PMA is the ideal choice, or if you have command line access, use mysqldump and gzip the output to a file. I've seen a 250MB uncompressed db shrink down to 10MB before now, so it's well worth doing to save on your bandwidth and upload/download time

It seems like adding a gzipped Backup function into the core would be a nice feature at some point in the future. I'd post it in the Feature Requests forum, but I have a feeling it would get ignored until all the 1.5 bugs are fixed. ;D
