Before hiring someone I don't know to make changes to our website, I want to back it up.  We are running version 2.4.0 of Expression Engine.  Any ideas regarding how I can go about backing up the files and database?

If it is hosted by a hosting company they might be able to do it.

Thanks -- I believe that is what I am going to have to do - -- was trying to avoid asking since it might raise a red flag :-)

Sorry I didn't respond to this sooner.  I did go to the hosting company (didn't want to use them at first  because they also developed the site and I was going to be going to another developer -- I didn't want to send a red flag).  All worked out.
