    When I am in my dashboard, there is no plugin directory on the left side. So, I am unable to download any plugins.

    I want to add the plugin which allows me to back-up my blog.

    So, how can I back-up my blog? I was going to use the phpmyadmin plugin to back it up.

    if you are on wordpress.com as in your website is something.wordpress.com

    We can't help you on these forums. You'll have to go ask them at the link I provided. AFAIK you can't add plugins, or have access to your database, or use phpmyadmin, or anything like that on wordpress.com hosted sites
