🥳SQL Backup

It is your responsibility to always keep your files backed up.

SQLBackupAndFTP is a software that backups SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL Server databases, performs regular full, differential, and transaction log backups, runs file/folder backup, zips and encrypts the backups, stores them on a network or on an FTP server or in the cloud, removes old backups, and sends an e-mail confirmation on the job's success or failure.

Heidi SQL Setup

Step 1

Click on Connect to Database Server settings wheel.

Step 2

From the Server type, select MySQL Server(TCP/IP) Server Name: (usually what it defaults to for HeidiSQL) User Name: root Password: (Leave blank, unless you set a password) Click on Test Connection to make sure that is says connection has succeeded.

Step 3

Select Databases and click save & close

Step 4

Go to the store backups in selected destinations section and click on the green +. Select what you'd like to use to store your database. We recommend Google Drive. We highly recommend that you store it OUTSIDE of the VPS. Makes no sense for you to store database in a VPS.

Step 5

Go to the tab Schedule backups and run a test backup. Make sure the backup was done and delivered to your selected location.
