Where can I find information about backup of the database and the configurations?

What kind of information? Do you have any specific questions?

Here are a few scenarios that I am interested in:
  1. I want to clone the site to a new orchard site.
  2. I want to change the database from SQL to MySQL, or vice versa.
  3. The current orchard site is broken, I want to recover the data and the configuration.
What is the easiest way to do these? Is there any module to backup the data and the configuration? Is there any tutorial or help page?

Thanks for your help!

I found the Import/Export module. Would this module be a potential backup module by adding a backup button to export everything?
What if the data is huge, and xml file is not good enough to handle? Is there any easy modification to export directly to a new orchard site? Any efforts on this feature?

I suppose you could.
If the data is too big for an XML file, you could always backup the database itself.
There's been talk about deploying contents to other Orchard instances. Just talk, no (usable) code yet.
