Database backup

My next post will be about how to do a database backup. For someone who has been in a situation wherein I felt helpless when I lost all my posts, this is now a must. Last weekend, I thought I’d go crazy when my other blog lost all its posts. The technical support guy of my web host can’t tell me anything at first. When I got angry already, he told me that he doesn’t really know anything right then except that they are having issues with their database. I panicked because I wrote at least 30 sps 3 days prior to that incident so there’s no way I can write it all again.

Anyway, after about 30 minutes of senseless chat with the tech guy, he cut me off and I just had to wait almost an hour and the posts were back. Well, now database backup is a must for me. I will write a lengthy post about it later.
