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 can be integrated seamlessly into WordPress because they are entirely written in PHP. It does not matter what your technical knowledge is, you can install a WordPress plugin. 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. One such type of plugin is the WordPress Backup 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. In order for users to enable this WordPress plugin, they have to login to their WordPress site and activate the ‘Backup’ option in their admin dashboard.
When you activate the ‘Backup’ option from your admin dashboard, you will be prompted for a username and password. Enter these credentials and hit the ‘Save Changes’ button to apply your changes. The plugin will be available to any user who 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 ask you if you would like to automatically save your files into 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. The enhanced version allows you to edit your post list and keywords directly 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 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. Go to the plugins menu, and click on the option to add third-party plugins. Click the button to install the bot, next to it the word “search”, and finally click the option to search a third-party repository of source code.
