As title, I am deploying my local dev solution to staging. I got everything workings except the status of plugins. I have installed some plugins in dev, and after I deploy the plugins folder, they are available in staging too, except they are not installed nor configured. Seems the configurations are not installed in the database, so instead of reconfigure them one by one, is there anyway to "deploy" these configurations?
Apparently settings are saved in DB, so you need to copy over (part if not all) the DB rows too. :D
I don't think that's the case. I restored the whole DB across. All orders / products etc retained, except only plugins
Did you upload the /App_Data/InstalledPlugins.txt file also?
Nope, that's the missing step in the deployment!!
