Files to whitelist for change detection (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm the author of the UpdraftPlus backup plugin.

    I'm not sure if you carry a default list of files that are allowed to change, without warning the user, but if so, then anything matching this pseudo-regex is harmless and should be added:

    WP_CONTENT_DIR/updraft/log.([0-9a-f]{12}).txt

    Many thanks,
    David

    Goto menu > Security > Intrusion Detection > File Change Detection > set exclude for Include/Exclude List and put the directory "WP_CONTENT_DIR/updraft" on File/Directory Check List.

    Hi,

    Thank you Handoko... I know how it's done on an individual site; but I was suggesting to the plugin authors a global addition to prevent false positives for 100% of UpdraftPlus users rather than making them each do it themselves. UpdraftPlus has 145,000 downloads, so it would save a lot of man hours rather than everyone having to do it manually.

    If I'm not wrong the author of this plugin rarely check this forum. You should contact him directly using the Contact on his website.
