Re: Installation involves database management and I suck at that
Sound interesting eclipsenow
You can backup bbpress using a wordpress backup tool. If integrated, bbpress and wordpress use the same databases anyway. The plugin I use sends a backup of the whole blog & forum to my mail every week, day, month or whatever you want).
I use this plugin: http://www.blogtrafficexchange.com/wordpress-backup/
Though this seems the most popular: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-db-backup/
If you customize your template you should manually take a backup of that template as well, though. It’s just one folder you should get from your webserver whenever you change the template. If you don’t change the template (which I think is probably the case for you), then backing up your template folder is not of your concern yet.
More info & alternatives:
(I’m sure the experts in this forum can tell you a lot more about general backup through cpanel and such. I’m just a guy learning through tutorials & trial and error just like you:p )
