Wordpress Website Database Backup Location Query

Recently - like a few days ago - I took a backup of my Wordpress website. In what part of the WPRESS backup file, would I likely find please, the database of my website?

Thank you

depends what backup you used. often missed. suggest install a decent WP plugin that does everything like backwpup. Its free and you can set it to do every day to your dropbox account or similar

I used a tool called "All in One Migration" - so I'd imagine, it got it all? to claim you can migrate a site?

One would assume so. Not familiar with this one, but similar ones to move sites are designed just to do that and the data may not be individually in a useful form.

Thanks, it was only a few days back, so I'll just get my host to do a full restore!

Thanks for your help

No worries. I suggest always set auto daily/ weekly backups to somewhere else. its free and easy. Your host may not always be able to do so
