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 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 gives the user the ability to update plugins, change themes and even perform tasks remotely. 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. To apply your changes, enter these credentials and click the ‘Save Changes” button. The plugin will be available to any user who has access to your dashboard. You may want to download a WordPress theme from the official WordPress website. This will allow you to choose the plugins that you will see when you log in to your WordPress site.
Now that you have activated the ‘Backup’ WordPress plugin, you can perform all of your backup tasks from your Dashboard. Just click the ‘List All Installed Plugins’ icon to display the list of available plugins. On the left hand side, under ‘Plugin ‘select Backup ‘and click the word ” select ‘yes’. A pop up window will appear asking you if you want to automatically save your files to your database. To confirm, click the “Yes” button
The WordPress backup plugin provides two different functionality options. The first is the regular ‘List All Installed Plugins’ functionality. This functionality will backup your entire WordPress database. The second is the enhanced version of the functionality. The enhanced version allows you to edit your post list and keywords directly 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 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. The backup for your WordPress database is one of the plugins that you should be looking at. It is located in the 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.
