I searched before. It might be beyond my comprehension. I thought there was someone who can can do this for a fee. I’m not familiar with MySQL and it might take too long for me to understand it. I found the actual datase folder. However, the MySQL folder has like 50 files in them. It really doesn’t make sense to me since I’m used to a single database file like access.

The solution is going to vary depending on where your mysql is hosted.
If it is Cloud SQL, there is Automatic Backups.
