Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » File change detection: exclude “plugins” directory

  • Hello,

    I manage a hundred sites that I regulary update using iThemes Sync. I use the file change detection feature to monitor suspicious activity on my sites.

    My problem is that as soon as I update a plugin on my sites with iThemes Sync, I receive a hundred alert emails listing all the plugin files. So I want to exclude the “plugins” directory from the file change detection feature to receive fewer emails.

    I recently excluded this directory in the “Files and Folders List” on each of my sites, but it has no effect: I still receive tons of emails after each plugin update.

    Anyone else experienced this? Is there a solution? Is this a bug or do I have to manually exclude each subdirectory of each plugin?

    Thanks for your help.
