This is quite a open question and will depend a lot on how your site has been developed.
But if you are using a code repo like git and have used Composer to mange the modules as well as having ssh access to your live site it should be simple to load the site to your localhost (this also assumes you have your local dev environment setup)

  • Load the files on to your local dev machine via your repo (Probably a git clone)
  • run composer install to load all the modules
  • Get a back up of your db and assets I would suggest using sspak for this
  • Load the db and assets via sspak

If you have not been using a code repo or composer then you should seriously look into it.
