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. 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 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.
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 is the enhanced version of the functionality. With the enhanced version you have the ability to edit your post list, categories and keywords 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 plug-ins, you only need to 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 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 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.
Finally, to continue with our tutorial we will install the third-party Pushover chat bot. Go to the plugins menu, and click on the option to add third-party plugins. On the installation screen, click the button for installing the bot and next to it is the word ”search” and finally click on the option for searching a third-party source code repository.
