    Hi,

    I used your plugin to downgrade WP from 5.5 to 5.4.2.

    Now Wordfence tells me that I have a lot of unknown files in WP core folders (wp-admin and wp-includes).

    Could you please confirm these files are WP 5.5 core files that the plugin left untouched there, and what your plugin did was just copy to wp-admin and wp-include folders the core files of the WP version to which I wanted to downgrade, in my case the 5.4.2 version?

    Many thanks

    List of file names in wp-admin and wp-includes after downgrading, which are considered unknown by Wordfence:

  • Just delete the files from wordfence itself. I have done the same thing.

    Wordfence does not understand that the version is going down. You can delete these files if you want, but they can also just stay. Do not worry.
