I have successfully been editing a plugin PHP file locally before uploading to server. All was going well and updating properly, but suddenly the website doesn’t react to changes in this specific PHP file any more. It’s as if the specific PHP file has been cached somewhere on the server (I doubt thats possible though).
Any changes I make, are not reflected on the website plugin page any longer (I have no idea whats going on).
When I go to edit the file from admin->plugins->editor, it says for this specific file:
Editing wordpress-ics-importer/cal-functions.php (inactive)
I’m pretty sure (inactive) has something to do with it. I tried to delete the content of the file, but then the page that displays the plugin displays an error (…naturally). I also tried to delete the file, but that also messes up the page of course – Just making sure it is actually using this file!
Im going nuts here – What does (inactive) mean for a plugin file? The plugin is obviously active, and the other editable files in the plugin are (active). Am I missing something?
