Do I need some extra WP-CLI bundle to activate mu-plugins via command line? I can't find anything about that in the docs. Are mu-plugins treated differently by WP-CLI?

I created /wp-content/mu-plugins/my-plugin.php containing:

  Plugin Name: My Plugin
  Description: Provide must-use code.
  Version: 1.0

When I do:

$ wp plugin list

I get:

| name          | status   | update | version |
| akismet       | inactive | none   | 4.0.8   |
| hello         | active   | none   | 1.7     |
| my-plugin     | must-use | none   | 1.0     |

But when I do:

$ wp plugin activate my-plugin

I get:

Warning: The 'my-plugin' plugin could not be found.
Error: No plugins activated.

mu-plugins don’t get activated. They’re activated just by being in that folder.

  • mu-plugins - there's a typo. Can't edit that. – leymannx Sep 9 '18 at 19:29
