I'm working with a team of developers on a new site and we've experienced an issue. All of have a local install (under SVN) of WP 3.1.3 running on our machines, but we're all connected to the same remote database.
The issue comes in when one of us creates a new plugin and installs it. Until the plugin files are checked-in to the SVN repository, and the other devs check-out the new plugin files, WP will deactivate the plugin (since we're all on the same db, but different local installs) if it can't find the plugin file on another dev's machine who happens to be in the WP Dashboard.
So for example:
- Dev A creates a plugin, and installs it. The files are local on his machine. He checks then into SVN.
- Dev B is in the dashboard, and hasn't gotten latest from the SVN repository so WP deactivates the plugin that Dev A just created since it can't find the files on Dev B's machine.
Is there any way around this other than each dev having a local db installed?
Any help would be much appreciated!
