Changing plugin filename causes Fatal error on automatic activation after update
|Reported by:||adiant||Owned by:|
In a new version of a (my) plugin in the WordPress repository, I changed the filename of the main plugin file (to match the folder name). When an old version of the plugin is activated, doing an automatic update to the latest version of the plugin (with the new filename), the following error message is displayed: "The plugin jonradio-display-kitchen-sink/jonradio-kitchen-sink.php has been deactivated due to an error: Plugin file does not exist."
An immediate manual Activation completes successfully.
Observed on sites with WordPress Network turned off and on, including when the plugin was Network Activated.
Plugin is jonradio Display Kitchen Sink, and update was from Version 1.0 to 1.1.
