Automatic Back-Up and Plug in Deactivation with Upgrade

    How difficult would it be to have a automatic back up and plug-in deactivation with every new upgrade, so for an example when you come to the upgrade page instead of only to upgrade your database you get back-up and plug-in deactivation, and once done WP checks the plug-ins compatibility and activate the ones that would work ???

    I built a plugin that does this, not quite automatically, but with one click. :-) Its called Plugin Tools, and it can be found at blog.fileville.net soon. Hope that helps...

    Well, I forgot to de-activate and re-activate my plugins with the last update. As of yet, nothing has exploded. However, I do agree: it's an easy step to miss...

    I think this would be a great feature to have added to the base WP download. I know we do not want somehting bloated, but a backup tool that includes plugins would be awesome.

    Hi,

    This plugin may help somewhat. You can deactivate all your plugins with one click. And reactivate them again with another click! Should save you quite a bit of time :)

    I need at least one latest Plug-in backup, when we updating the plug in using auto upgrade.

    it will be nice if wp could check all the plugins compatibility and suggest which would work properly after upgrade..

    @defuze: Checking plugin compatibility is under discussion as a feature for version 2.9 or 3.0.

    Plugins automatic update is necessary, I believe this will be realized.
