A WordPress plugin is basically a small piece of code containing a collection of functions which are added to an existing WordPress site. They often add new features or extend functionality to already existing WordPress sites. WordPress plugins are written entirely in the PHP language and are integrated seamlessly into WordPress. No matter your technical skills, you can install a WordPress plug-in. Many plugins also have ‘learn more’ tools to show you how to use them.
There are many plugins that can be used to enhance WordPress sites. WordPress Backup Plugin is one such plugin. This plugin enables users to backup their entire WordPress database to a remote location. This plugin allows users to remotely update plugins, modify themes, and perform other tasks. To enable this WordPress plugin, users must log in to their WordPress site and activate ‘Backup’ in their admin dashboard.
You will be asked for a username or password when you activate the Backup option from your admin dashboard. Enter these credentials and hit the ‘Save Changes’ button to apply your changes. This plugin will then be available for use by any user that has access to your dashboard. If you do not yet have a WordPress theme installed on your website, you may wish to install one from the official WordPress site as this will make it easier to select the plugins that will be available to you when you login to your WordPress site.
Now that you have activated the ‘Backup’ WordPress plugin, you can perform all of your backup tasks from your Dashboard. To see a list of all installed plugins, click the icon ‘List All Plugins’. You will find the ‘Plugin’ section on the left. Click the word’to select Backup. A pop up window will appear asking you if you want to automatically save your files to your database. Click the yes button to confirm.
Two different functionality options are available with the WordPress backup plugin. The first is the standard ‘List All Installed plugins’ functionality. This functionality will backup your entire WordPress database. The second version is the enhanced version. With the enhanced version you have the ability to edit your post list, categories and keywords from your Dashboard.
Now that you know how to backup from your Dashboard, how about adding new functionality to WordPress plugins? To add new functionality to WordPress plugins, all you have to do is activate the relevant WordPress plugins. Click on the WordPress plugins icon located at the bottom of this page next to the word “Select from a list” to do this. The screen will open and allow you to select one or more WordPress plug-ins.
Now click on the option to install plugins. A list of available plugins will appear. One of the plugins you will need to look at is the backup for your WordPress database. It is located in the exact same directory as the WordPress-admin directory. Click on the word “additionally installed” and then click the checkbox that confirms you want to install the chosen plugin.
Finally, to continue with our tutorial we will install the third-party Pushover chat bot. Go to the plugins menu, and click on the option to add third-party plugins. On the installation screen, click the button for installing the bot and next to it is the word ”search” and finally click on the option for searching a third-party source code repository.
