    this is what I found:

    1-You'll also need a backup of the /uploads/ folder to save all your images, media and other uploads. Actually, I save the whole wp-content folder. this gets all my uploads, the themes and plugins.

    2-I just install a fresh copy of WP, restore my old db, and put back the wp-content folder.

    hope this helps
