Yeah, I know. But am thinking that, if perfected, it could save the moodle admin noobie from some headaches ... maybe those that remotely host with no desire to use ssh/cli.
How many times have we seen, in these forums, either a botched install of a plugin where it was done 'manually' (not CLI, but cPanel FileManager) OR even, a botched update or upgrade due to an incompatible plugin either copied to the wrong location or caused the update/upgrade to fail ... 'whale fail'.
Yes, Rick ... he ought to be along any minute now with his methods ... know one 'pre-package' something local and do it that way. I, however, want not to use local machine at all. "Nuttin'" but server.
To each their own, I guess!
But thanks for asking and responding!
