This backup contains only the database dump.

To restore a complete server you need also a backup of several config files in the /etc/ directory including /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow and /etc/group, your web tree (/var/www or /home/www) and the mysql databases from the directory /var/lib/mysql/.

Is there any way to automate the process for make backups of all that files...and.... is there any "how to" to use it??

I recommend to make fully system backups. Please have a look here.
