How to Manually deactivate plugins

I’m running a multisite installation on a site that had a cart66 store. If I “network activate” Cart66 everything works just like before I converted to multisite, but the Cart66 is available on all other sites with no product info as if it is a new instance of the plugin because it is. If I just “activate” it under the primary site dashboard It’s acting as a new installation of Cart66.

My question is how do I manually DeActivate a plugin so that it will just not be turned on on the other sites as currently the only site I need it on is the primary.

    Hey kurtfeigel.

    If you network activate it, then it will be just that on every site. There is not way to pick which sites when you network activate something.

    To activate it on just one site, (first network deactivate it) go to your sites individual plugins:

    Admin -> Plugins

    And then activate it.

    It will then only be on the one website.

    Is this what you mean?

    Take care.

    Oh sorry… I think I see what you mean.

    So network activated, all the content is on the primary website?

    But when activated only on the primary it acts like a new install?

    I suspect its how the tables are set out in multiple, might worth asking the plugin authors about this to see what they say?

    Does Cart66 have an export and import feature? Just wondering if you could export it all, then switch and import it back in as a quick fix for ya?

    Take care.
