I develop / add to / etc. my site offline, then transfer the updated database (in toto) to the live site. Some of the plugins I need / use offline, I don't need online, and vice versa.
Is there a way to have one set of plugins active if the database is 'online' and a different set for 'offline'? Or do I just need to accept that whenever I upload a new version of the database I need to activate / deactivate as appropriate?
