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. It does not matter what your technical knowledge is, you can install a WordPress plugin. Many plugins have ‘learn More’ tools that will show you how to use them.
There are various different types of plugins available for WordPress sites. One such type of plugin is the WordPress Backup Plugin. This plugin allows users to back up their entire WordPress database to a remote place. 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.
Once you have activated the Backup WordPress plugin, all your backup tasks can be done from your Dashboard. Just click the ‘List All Installed Plugins’ icon to display the list of available 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 is the enhanced version of the functionality. With the enhanced version you have the ability to edit your post list, categories and keywords from your Dashboard.
So now you know you can perform a backup from your Dashboard, what about how you would add new functionality to the WordPress plugins? To add new functionality to WordPress plug-ins, you only need to 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. You will then see a screen where you can select one or more WordPress plugins.
Now click on the option to install plugins. A list of available plugins will appear. The backup for your WordPress database is one of the plugins that you should be looking at. 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. To do this, go to the plugins menu and click on the option for adding 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.
