database consists of all the data. you can take its backup on regular basis (& delete older backups)
you might be knowing that MyBB admin panel has database backup facility (at tools & maintenance section)
in general, restoring should be done through database manager (eg. phpMyAdmin)

So, all i have to do is to

Generate and Download the backup from Admin CP. (Maintainence and tools)

Do i need to type YES or NO here ? what u recommed me to ?
Analyze and Optimize Selected Tables
Would you like the selected tables to be analyzed and optimized during the backup?

and to restore the forum database i have to Dump the file in PhPMyAdmin. thats all?

1. I'd prefer selecting No
2. drop tables of existing database & import the backup into the database
(so that you do not have to change database details in ~/inc/config.php file)
