When on **Backup Database and Media** page, you should see two buttons: "Download database backup" and "Download media backup". By clicking on one of these buttons, a backup process starts and eventually, a backup file gets downloaded by your browser. Please be advised that clicking on the buttons doesn't create a backup on the server. If you need to create server stored backups, you should use command-line and commands provided by django-dbbackup module.

This extension allows to make a quick backup and get it downloaded to your computer. Don't use this tool if you have large database dumps and / or lots of media. This tool is suitable for small installations.
