We all like to fiddle with our sites. Change a few settings, try a few new plugins, maybe see if we can make the site a tad faster with a line of code we found on a random website. Nothing wrong with that – curiosity leads to learning.
But at the same time, if the site is live, visitors are on it, and we don’t have a backup or any other way to undo the changes when things go south that fiddling can be quite dangerous.
In some circumstances, it quickly leads to partial or complete loss of data and site. There is a simple way to be smarter and prevent those situations.
