Clarification on Plugins (5 posts)

    Just a question concerning the update from 2.2.1 to 2.5. The docs state that I should disable the plugins and that I can re-enable them after the install and then it states to delete all my old wp files. How do you enable something you've just deleted? Surely I'm not expected to re-install all the plugins...am I? If so, why can't I just leave the plugin folder intact? Will this corrupt the upate? Based on all the posts in this forum concerning issues with upgrading to 2.5 I am trying to make the upgrade as smooth as possible.

    nothing says to delete your plugins directory. In fact, it says not to touch stuff inside wp-content/ which includes that directory.

    Its right here:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress_Extended#Step_7:_Delete_the_old_WordPress_files

    you disable your plugins,

    you upload new files. .. go thru upgrade steps...

    you re-activate plugins.

    Whooami, thanks for the quick reply. I guess I had the wrong docs.

    Yeah, I thought that it meant 2.2.1 for some reason (dislexia maybe). :)

    I noticed that my theme isn't listed on the compatible themes list for 2.5. Is there some docs (search didn't turn up anything) on how to make it compatible with 2.5? Again thanks for your help.
