    1111Why isn't `WP_Upgrader` making a backup of the packages before replacing them? Why is it WordPress forcing third party developers and users to have closely related stuff in different places?

    13 This no-feature, the lack of a transparent backup, is a bug that appeared with the (fantastic) ''update now'' functionality. I mean, not only it didn't implement a backup, but before it was released, a backup wasn't needed. In fact, each user was aware (before or after help requests) of the proper procedure to install / update a plugin.

    1515Do you remember? First you had to download it to your PC, then you had to open an FTP connection to your site, then, if it was an update, '''you''' had to make a backup and then delete the old directory contents or, if it was a new install, you had to create a new directory, and lastly you could upload all plugin's files to that directory.
