I recently noticed that after manually updating any plugin it is left deactivated.

Is this the correct operation? Or might there be a problem with my install?


  • I've noticed the same, but it's never been a problem. After the plugin update is complete, and the Plugins page re-loads (showing the updated plugin as inactive), try refreshing the page; does it show the plugin active again? – Gabriel Aug 10 '14 at 8:32
  • Thanks - no, the plugin is deactivated and has to be activated again. I'm sure it didn't used to be this way. It might be an issue simply because I manage a few sites and would often bulk update plugins, but didn't realise I then had to go back and reactivate them all :O – speedypancake Aug 10 '14 at 8:42

After manual update, plugins are deactivated by default. It's like installing a new plugin all over again.
