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 also have ‘learn more’ tools to 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 enables users to backup their entire WordPress database to a remote location. This gives the user the ability to update plugins, change themes and even perform tasks remotely. To enable this WordPress plugin, users must log in to their WordPress site and activate ‘Backup’ 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. 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. 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.
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 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 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. You will then see a screen where you can select one or more WordPress plugins.
Click on the button to install plugins. A list of all available plugins will be displayed. 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. Simply click on the word ”additionally installed” and then click on the check box that indicates you are sure you want to install the selected plugin.
