Ignore Files/Files does not work (8 posts)

    I can't get the "Dirs/Files to Ignore" section to work. I place the following in it, and it won't ignore them:

    /wp-content/cache/
    /wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-wp-security-and-firewall/logs/wp-security-log-cron-job.txt
    /wp-content/plugins/si-contact-form/captcha/cache/

    And I still get alerts like this:'

    Files Changed:
    /wp-content/cache/config/master.php
    /wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-wp-security-and-firewall/logs/wp-security-log-cron-job.txt

    I had to put mine in like this.

    /home/content/k/l/a/klatch/html/wp/wp-content/cache
    /home/content/k/l/a/klatch/html/wp/wp-content/w3tc-config/master.php
    /home/content/k/l/a/klatch/html/wp/wp-content/cache/config/master.php
    /wp-content/cache
    /wp-content/w3tc-config/master.php
    /wp-content/cache/config/master.php

    Each by itself would not work, ended up leaving both the root path and just the path as you have them. Not sure if it was something with my host provider or another plugin.

    Thanks Klatch. I gave it a try and it didn't work for me. Here's the setup I tried:

    /public_html/wp-content/cache/
    /public_html/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-wp-security-and-firewall/logs/wp-security-log-cron-job.txt
    /public_html/wp-content/plugins/si-contact-form/captcha/cache/
    /wp-content/cache/
    /wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-wp-security-and-firewall/logs/wp-security-log-cron-job.txt
    /wp-content/plugins/si-contact-form/captcha/cache/

    For a bluehost website I use this.

    /home4/(removed account name)/public_html/wp/wp-content/cache
    /wp-content/cache
    /home4/(removed account name)/public_html/wp/wp-content/cache/config/master.php
    /cache/config/master.php
    /wp-content/cache/config/master.php
    /home4/(removed account name)/public_html/wp/wp-content/w3tc-config/master.php
    /wp-content/w3tc-config/master.php

    Since you have /public_html/ in your directory, maybe your not all the way at root level yet if you are using Bluehost or one of the other names they use here

    I just did some research to get the absolute path for my server and it's actually like this:

    /home/(removed account name)/public_html/wp-content/cache/

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    However, I have discovered something else. It will only work for a directories when 1) I place no slash at the end of the path, and 2) it has to show the directories all the way to the final subdirectory if it is a directory of a directory.

    Note: I also did not have to double up the instances (with and without the full path) like you did.

    Your help is much appreciated!

    I checked the code and i just wanted to point out to people here as i did in another related thread in this support area that you can simply make use of the "*" wildcard at the beginning and end of a directory or filename to have it ignored too.

    From the code it indeed is about putting the full file path but it can vary from server to server. There are many ways to get the precise prefix that this plugin is using but i figured for the lazy types "*" is the simplest solution.

    Same problem. In my case it's the same in three different hosting environments... I installed this plugin in place of old "WordPress File Monitor" and that good ol' doesn't have this issue. It would be nice if plugin with the PLUS would have it fixed too.
