Normally I have to use both SSH and Phpmyadmin to backup files, folders, mysql databases. I am wondering if there is a way only use SSH command line to backup whole my website files and databases?

It might be pretty simple, so please check it out and let me know did it work.
Hope it helps :

These commands are just to compress your current files and folders in public_html folder, It didn't include databases of your websites in it. If you just are doing that, your backup is not completed.

To backup a database, you just need to run

Bash:
mysqldump -u database_user -p database_name > database_dump.sql
Then you can make an archive with all your files with tar :
Bash:
# To extract an uncompressed archive:
tar -xvf /path/to/foo.tar

# To create an uncompressed archive:
tar -cvf /path/to/foo.tar /path/to/foo/

# To create a .gz archive:
tar -czvf /path/to/foo.tgz /path/to/foo/

# To create a .bz2 archive:
tar -cjvf /path/to/foo.tgz /path/to/foo/
