A WordPress plugin is basically a small piece of code containing a collection of functions which are added to an existing WordPress site. They are often used to add new functionality or enhance functionality to 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 have ‘learn More’ tools that will 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 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. 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 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 all of your WordPress databases. The second version is the enhanced version. The enhanced version allows you to edit your post list and keywords directly from your Dashboard.
