How to delete all plguins? - 1r7lx8d34q - 2014-09-06

Hi guys,
Is there a "fast way" to delete all plugins without deleting core files?

I don't mean disable the plugins.

Remove the files from the ./inc/plugins folder?

+ inc\languages\english
That's what I was thinking but I wasn't sure if it's safe, since some plugins have more than just 2 files.

That's absolutely not a correct way to do it.. If you delete the files without deactivating the plugins first, you will end up having leftovers in the database (new tables, settings, etc.) and you may break stuff if a plugin edited core files, for example. Everything should be deactivated/uninstalled before file removal.

Sorry I forgot to say that I'll delete the plugins after I deactivate them.
But disabling them, deleting everything from those place is a good way to do it?

If you deactivate/uninstall them, then yes, you can freely remove them.
