    For some reason, ARQ keeps automatically quarantining log files below. Is there a workaround for this problem?

    Yes, I have noticed this minor buggy issue on a few hosts with a particular type of PHP Server configuration. You should be able to just exclude the error_log file path using the "Add / Exclude Static Files" method shown in the ARQ Guide - http://www.ait-pro.com/aitpro-blog/4204/bulletproof-security-pro/arq-infinity-guide-full-website-autorestore-and-full-website-quarantine/

    Did you use ini_set Options to setup your php error log file or create a custom php.ini file or .user.ini file?

    Which web host do you have? Thanks.

    I didn't originally set the ini_set Options but made the fix. We're using Canvas Dreams. What's the purpose of the PHP Error Log?

    Adding a php error log allows you to monitor your website for any php coding problems so that you are aware they are occurring and can then take care of them/fix them.

    Example: you install a new plugin and you are seeing php errors in your php error log. you can then either fix that plugin's coding error yourself or notify the plugin's author about the coding error.

    Also if a hacker is repetitively trying to exploit some coding in a particular plugin then you will see those exploit attempts in your php error log. you can then decide to remove the plugin, fix the plugin's coding or notify the plugin's author about the problem/vulnerability.

    Thanks for the clarification. The ini setting busted the site with 500 errors. I config file changed though - same as you described below.

    Download the wp-config.php file and remove/delete the code that you see between these identifiers. And then upload the wp-config.php file back to the website. I would like to take a look at this website to see why this problem is occurring. I will send an email to you shortly. Thanks.

    /** END BPS Pro ini_set Settings **/

    Yes, that would be ideal. Thanks for the excellent support.

    Resolved. This particular web host allows custom php.ini files. A custom php.ini file was created and ini_set Options were also used. The error_log issue was related to the ini_set issue and has also been resolved as well.
