Backup web files owned by web user as zip
Backup all files in web directory as root user
the zip file contains only files owned by the web user, thats the most secure way but if you have e.g, files onwed by a different user like root in these folders, they will not be backed up. The tar backup will contain all files that are in the subfolders of the web but it might lead to security problems depending on the harddisk layout of the server.

What can I do to backup the database as well for all the websites?
Ensure that the correctw ebsite is selected in the database settings of all databases. This selector is new, so if a database ahs been created in a older ispconfig version, you will have to set it first before the db gets included into the backup.
