With SqlBak you can create a backup job to run scheduled backups of MySQL, send the backups to their destinations and, if needed, restore them. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to automate your MySQL backups if it’s only accessible via phpMyAdmin.
There are two types of people: people who do back up their files, and people who need to start doing it.
If you are not backing up your MySQL databases yet, you should start before you lose your precious data.
Making backups is necessary, but doing this with large databases may involve high server load and using up storage space. And only creating a backup once a day or once a week could lead to losing hours of work. So how can you make backups more often without overloading the server? Incremental backups can help you with this.

No matter what IT project you are creating, you will always need a sandbox for testing and development. If your product has a MySQL database, then you will need to create a database in a development environment.
If you have an important database, then you need to make sure to back it up regularly. Preferably, you will make sure this happens automatically. But performing regular backups is only half the battle — you also have to consider where to store them. Saving the backups on the same server where the MySQL Server is installed isn’t safe, because if it crashes, you will lose everything.
