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. It does not matter what your technical knowledge is, you can install a WordPress plugin. Many plugins have ‘learn More’ tools that will 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.

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. This plugin will then be available for use by any user that 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.
