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. 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 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. 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. 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. 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. With the enhanced version you have the ability to edit your post list, categories and keywords from your Dashboard.
