  • On multisite when viewing the wp-activate.php page file, all plugins are disabled temporary because the WP_INSTALLING constant was defined at the top of the wp-activate.php file. So whenever a new user is confirming their account by email, this prevent plugins from running and listening to important events such as wpmu_new_user, add_user_to_blog, and wp_activate.

    That define isn’t new. Are you sure this only broke in 5.5 ?

    No, not just 5.5. It’s been there for a while now, but would be great to see a fix for this.

    We ask that you don’t post in the Alpha/Beta forum unless you’re actually testing the current alpha/beta version of WordPress (not a plugin or a theme). Once WordPress has released a version, it’s not appropriate to post in alpha/beta and you should post in the Fixing WordPress forum:

    This post has been moved out for you.

    That I didn’t realize. Thanks for moving it to the right location.

    Seems like this has been around a while: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/23197

    This is interesting @garyj: the ticket you pointed contains lot of great info.

    Looking at the activation process in WP, defining the WP_INSTALLING constant is useful, but it’s important that other operations are not treated irregulary just to comform to an instance (such as installation) that is currently running.

    Beside the main site setup for the first time, site installation thereafter should not be breaking load processes just because we need to bail the installation instance.
