Losing all your data is the biggest nightmare any website administrator can face, even more so than facing a cyber-attack! It is not only a disaster from the security point of view, but it could ruin the very foundation of a business. That’s why, taking regular backups is one of the most important tasks on an administrator’s job task list. Many DBMSs (database management systems) offer easy tools that help admins take backups quite easily. However, some DBMSs, such as MySQL, don’t offer that convenience and that’s why you have to set up MySQL auto backups or MySQL scheduled backups.
