So, can Whatsapp be backed up offline or on cloud now?

I need to swap sdcard from Lumia 520, but last time I tried it I lost the history and my dad was mad about it for days.
As far as i can tell, it is getting stored in SD card alone as messages.db in the below path.

Take a backup from L520, paste it in the same path in another Lumia and check whether it's recognizing or not.

It does work. I had once reset my phone and after installing and logging into whatsapp, it automatically restored all my messages from SD card.

That's not how I would do things though. In your case, you didn't swap your memory card. In case of Lumia, apparently security is too high, so even if I make exact replica of data in another card, Lumia will fall to load files and apps from it.
