How are we supposed to do major upgrade when we have plugin (installed directly from moodle) ?
As written in docs, just copying new file in the moodle folder doesn't work because it will not remove old file (and this will raise the mixed moodle version error).
The docs say « If you have Automatic updates deployment enabled, you will be able to update installed plugins automatically during the upgrade. » and « If you are updating plugins manually, it is a good moment now to check in the Moodle Plugins directory whether there is a 3.9 version available for any plugins (including themes) that you have previously installed on your site. If so, download the plugin package. In the next step, you will copy it to the appropriate location in your Moodle code (see Installing plugins). »
As I am using automatic install, I shouldn't be concerned by the manual part, right ?
But after we can found : "As mentioned above, if you had installed any plugins on your site you should add them to the new code tree". So is the part about getting plugin code also true for people installing plugin automatically ?
I tried deleting all moodle file except config.php, moving new moodle file, and putting back config.php but during the install moodle tell me plugin are missing from disk.
Does this means that even if you install plugin automatically, you have to do it manually when you update moodle ?
I also tried moving the mod folder from old moodle to new moodle but I am still having the missing plugin issue.
So am I forced to download each of my installed plugin to paste them manually in the new moodle (which will take me lots of time) ? Or am I missing something ?
Ps : I am just training myself to upgrade my local moodle (wamp server) to the moodle dev channel (v4) in order to be ready for doing the v3.9 upgrade on my real website.
