Dear Experts,

Our website needs to be redone because a component doesn't work like it should. I probably have to set up joomla! again to clean up this mess.

My problem is now, that we don't seem to have a local copy for our current custom-made template. Is there any way how I can download the current active template?

Thank you for all your answers!

Try this

Summary

There are two parts to a complete back up of your Joomla site
a) The database information, most often found in your mysql database
b) The files and folders on your website, as hosted on most static html websites

I know the question is closed, but make sure you keep a backup of any .htaccess file and keep it handy.

Sometimes .htaccess files are hidden and sometimes they could be overwritten.

And by having a backup of your .htaccess file from your old live site, it can help you or your hosting company fix any unexpected issues related to the "wrong" .htaccess file being made live on the site.
