Luckily, guarding against data loss isn't as hard as you think!
With just a few key concepts and examples, you'll know how to guard against accidents and server failures with minimum or no data loss!
It's a great start, but it's not enough to prevent future headaches.
There's just a few concepts you need to know to really understand how to make effective backups.

Ever wished for a way to "undo" queries?
We'll cover how to rewrite query history and use point-in-time recovery.

I'm Chris Fidao. I create videos and articles for developers and their servers at Servers for Hackers. I try to help as many developers as I can learn the basics of web servers so they can avoid server-related nightmares.
In case you're interested, I also made Scaling Laravel, Shipping Docker, and the Deploy PHP! video series.
