A WordPress plugin is a small piece code that adds functions 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. 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 various different types of plugins available for 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 plugin allows users to remotely update plugins, modify themes, and perform other tasks. To enable this WordPress plugin, users must log in to their WordPress site and activate ‘Backup’ in their admin dashboard.
You will be asked for a username or password when you activate the Backup option from your admin dashboard. To apply your changes, enter these credentials and click the ‘Save Changes” button. 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.
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. 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.
Two different functionality options are available with the WordPress backup plugin. 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.
