Check the TO field and make sure the auto-fill correctly filled the email that you wish to receive these submissions.
Also check the FROM – if it entered an email that does not exist, go to the CPanel control panel and under “mail” either add that email (or one you prefer) OR under “mail” choose forwards and create a forward to one of existing email accounts if you don’t to have a new account to check
Place on website
Look towards the top of the page and copy the shortcut code. Click “save” Then goto your contact page & add paste this code in your page using the “html” view
Find the root directory of you website (normally public_html)
Double click on public_html to open the folder
Click on the first file/fold in the directory – hold your shift key – click on the last file/folder in that directory – all should be highlighted
Right mouse click on any of the highlighted files and a menu should appear
For windows, I choose “Zip Archive”
Click Compress Files
It will name the zip after the first file/fold in the directory – my files was cgi-bin.zip
Rename to whatever is relevant i.e. domainname-backup-date.zip
Right mouse click on file & download your computer
Next find your database name by looking in your wp-config file (double-click will download the file) open with note-pad and look for DB_NAME
BACK UP DATABASE
Go back to cPanel
Under Databases choose phpMyAdmin
On the left menu find the database that is used by your WordPress Site (DB_Name above)
Click once on the name all tables should now show on the left and be highlighted
Click Export from the top menu
Quick – display only the minimal options
MOVE TO SECURE LOCATION
All files that we download should show on the bottom bar of your browser (if they are not there, look in your download fold on your machine)
Right click on one and choose open in folder
Highlight and move these files to a location you will remember. It is always a good idea to keep several copies in different locations – on your hard drive, on an external hard drive that is not normally connected to your computer, and on the cloud as well
