 > Let me add that despite being a live site I could deactivate plugins
 temporarily but please let me know: If I deactivate/reactivate a plugin,
 does it come back to normal? Does it keep all settings? Will everything
 work just the same as it did before deactivation?

 Simply, yes. Deactivated plugins can do nothing to the settings, simply
 because it's not active (the code not loaded). When reactivated they
 usually don't see/know that it has been deactivated, if no special
 tracking of that is implemented.

 You van also rename the plugins folder temporarily.

 Deleting a plugin form the admin means uninstall, that depending on the
 plugin and it's settings, settings or data may disappear.

 Having a backup of the database is always wise. All settings are usually
 in the database.
