Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » File change warning, Wordfence

  • Resolved ATLWPdude



    It there a reason Updraft files would change? Wordfence gave me a warning on the following files:

    * Modified plugin file: wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/class-zip.php
    * Modified plugin file: wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/methods/googledrive.php
    * Modified plugin file: wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/restorer.php

    I searched the forums but didn’t see the question. Sorry if the answer is a simple one, newbie here.

    Hi ATLWPdude,

    Sometimes plugin authors make legitimate changes to plugin files, without changing the version number of the overall plugin (so that we don’t force everybody to see a new update too often, if the change was minor). Wordfence has an algorithm that doesn’t account for this – a lot of plugin authors wish whoever authored Wordfence would fix it!

    Best wishes,

    That’s what I thought, I’ll just ignore them for your plugin in the future.
