Wordpress backup

So I have a few Wordrpress blogs, and I would like to know how to back up the content to my harddrive. I don’t know much about SQL databases.

FYI I have backed up the layout/templates, I’m just looking to back up the database that stores the posts/content.

Thanks for the help. Ryan

All the best,
