Plugins cannot be added or removed via the WordPress admin dashboard (WP Admin) on the VIP Platform. Plugins must be added to the
/plugins directory found in the root of a site’s code repository via GitHub, and can be code activated to ensure control and consistency across all environments.
The /plugins directory is mapped to /wp-content/plugins/ ; this directory works similarly to
WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/plugins/' in a self-hosted WordPress installation. To install plugins to this directory, they must be added to the plugins directory in the application’s GitHub repository.
Custom plugins can be loaded from either the /plugins directory, or the /client-mu-plugins directory, depending on the preferred loading behavior.
