In the production environments, data loss when we accidentally delete the files, or when server crashes or system fails, or when we applied migrations to the data that didn't work so we don't get previous data with the schema.

So we need to do data dump each time or every day when we do changes in the production

In this blog post, you will see how to take a backup, restore your database for MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB databases.

   Data Restore Command:

   mongorestore --username user_name --password pass_word --db database_name path_to_your_dump_directory
