 This may be by design, but I've discovered that with 4.6, if you have
 several plugins from a previous install, you can't just copy them to the
 plugins directory and have them register as being installed.

 You have to go through the process of installing them through the
 dashboard or restore via a backup, but I'd imagine that this wouldn't work
 unless you were also restoring the db...
 And.. I just confirmed that restores from pre 4.6 - plugins restored will
 still not register as being installed

 Deleting _transient_timeout_plugin_slugs and _transient_plugin_slugs
 wp_options records seems to force the installed plugins to update, but
 unless I'm just being impatient, it doesn't look like the plugins will
 show up otherwise.
