I am using
composer to install plugins to my sites, but is worried that
composer update will crash my site for those plugins that might issuing database update when there's new version
Suppose, in a hypothetical wordpress site:
plugin version 1.0
Few months later, the latest version is now
plugin version 1.3
composer update (this is the same way as I download a copy of the latest plugin and just copy-paste-overwrite the files in the plugins folder) and the plugin files has now been overwritten by the plugin files for version 1.3, which handles the file part
BUT what if, in
plugin version 1.2 the author required its users to do some database upgrade, is there a chance that me updating from
v 1.0 directly to
v 1.3 I would skip such notices about database upgrade?
Is there a rule for wordpress that when you update your plugin ONLY files will be updated, and the database upgrade will prompted at later time?
