Test an addon without uninstall all?

Sometimes other addons can prevent the good functioning of my scripts. You contact me then for me to report a bug, but some tests are to be done in advance. To avoid wasting time to open a ticket, test my addon separately from other addons.
This will help determine if another addon is the cause of your problem, which is usually the case. Once you have found what addon is the problem, I would put every effort to correct the conflict.

💡 If you already have a server to test your addons before you install it is perfect, you have the good practice. Otherwise, follow the following steps, thanks to it you will not have to remove all your addons and re_uploader. You'll save a lot of time.

I) Create a folder that you will rename "addons_disabled" in the "addons"folder : GarrysMod/garrysmod/addons/addons_disabled/

II) Put all the addons that you do not want to disable inside "addons_disabled", to keep only the one you want to test, this means we do not re-upload your addons then and so save time in your tests.

III) Restart the server, if the problem is solved then you will know that the problem is not coming from my script. By adding the addons group by group, you'll be able to find the cause of the problem.

IV) Once the conflict is found, you will be able to notify me properly and I could fix the problem.
