Step 05 – Install Recommended Plugins

Updated : 05-Jul-2023

Next you’ll need to install all your favourite plugins. 

Remove Unnecessary Plugins Installed By WordPress

If your installation contains any pre-installed plugins then you may want to delete most of those. I mean delete plugins like Akismet or Hello Dolly. If your host has pre-installed plugins that they require for say caching or security, you should keep those. For example I host with GridPane and they automatically install Nginx Helper and Redis Object Cache plugins and I of course keep those caching plugins installed.

Install Your Preferred Plugins

You will have your own preferred plugin list. My recommended WordPress plugins are here in case you want to do as I do.

Activate Plugins

Activate the plugins you need during development and put in all necessary license keys.
