  • New to the site and to plug-in development, so I apologize if question is in the wrong forum….

    What happens behind the scenes when a plug-in is automatically updated? Is a zip created, and then extracted onto the system or are the files directly copied over or something else all together?

    I’m curious as I’m working on a plug-in that does some stuff upon activation (i.e. create a user, etc.) and knowing the behavior when updating will help make some decisions on further development.
