Help please - our installation is confused about where to update its plugins.
We first installed WordPress in a subdirectory and then we moved it to the root by following the instructions here
(and we ran the search and replace php script).
So now, the plugins our installation uses are in the directory
and those plugins work fine. If we manually upload a plugin to that directory, WordPress detects it, we can activate it, and it works normally.
However, when it comes time to update, delete, or automatically install a plugin, our installation operates on the old directory:
I would like to fix this.
Can anyone tell me where, in the database, is the information that tells WordPress where to operate on the installed plugins? This seems to be different than the information that tells it from where to LOAD the installed plugins. I would call this a BUG - but meanwhile, would like to find a way to correct this problem.
