Plugins Folder in WPMU 1.5 (7 posts)

    Can someone definitively tell me where plugins should be located in wpmu 1.5? I don't see a wp_plugins folder anymore and so I've simply created a plugins folder within wp-admin.

    Anyone?

    Thx

    Your plugins folder should be called plugins and be in wp-content. You should also have an mu-plugins folder in the same directory.

    OK, but the new install of 1.5 does not create these automatically, so just create them, right? BTW...I meant to say wp-content above so I have that one right. ;)

    Thx

    yep, if they are not there then create them.

    Last question on this, and I've searched, but what exactly differentiates the two. At face value, it looks like plugins in mu_plugins would effect blogs site wide (all blogs) but I fear that's just too easy. ;)

    Thanks again...

    Plugins in the mu-plugins folder are automatically activated for all blogs on the site.

    Plugins in the mu-plugins folder are automatically executed for all blogs on the site, and they are run all the time.

    Be careful not to stuff too much in there.
