WordPress Question: Why Do Plugins Disappear When Auto-Update Fails?
Hey folks – we’re currently asking our readers to send in questions about WordPress, the best of which we will publish here on the blog. Please submit your own WordPress question for a chance to win a free membership at WPMU DEV.
Today we’ve got a question about automatic updating problems with WordPress plugins, from a WPMU reader by the name of Gobi.
This causes all sorts of visual destruction to my site, and often requires an FTP session to reinstall the original files.
Isn’t there a better way for a plugin upgrade to fail?
Have you ever experienced a similar issue? Do you know how this problem can be resolved? If you have any ideas, please leave a comment below and let us know. Gobi will be grateful!
