Key features of BlogVault plugin
Let’s discuss the key features of BlogVault.
BlogVault introduced a super cool feature as a staging site. We will be able to create a staging site using the staging option on the dashboard.
We need to select the Backup Version and PHP Version from the drop-down menu in the dashboard and click submit.
On completion, a username and password will be provided. When accessing the staging URL you need to provide the login details.
A staging database will be present in phpMyAdmin to modify the staging site database.
Update plugin and themes
The BlogVault plugin will identify the plugins and themes in the BlogVault dashboard. This helps us to manage and keep us updated on the plugin and themes.
Another cool feature is the BlogVault firewall. Enabling the firewall option we can view the traffic logs and login request logs.
We can easily enable and disable it from the toggle button.
