I am new to WP and PHP and at the moment, am making a new PHP plugin. I am doing the coding on my Mac Desktop, so when I want to test an update, I do the following...
1) Save the PHP changes
2) Create a Zip file
3) Visit my WP Admin panel to Disable, Delete and re-Add the plug-in.
Is this too many steps?
Also, when I start to make source changes using SSH, on the server, what are the minimum steps to do follow, when I update the PHP for my plug-in?
