Support » Fixing WordPress » Folder Dates

  • Since a well known GDPR compliance plugin has been compromised I started to observe folder dates on the FTP server.
    It seems logical if you do an update or post an article that some of the files or folders change their date.
    But when doing nothing the folder wp-content constantly keeps changing the date. When I look inside none of the files or folders have that changed date.
    Is that normal or am I being too cautious? 😉

    You may have plugins that create temporary files in or below wp-content (e.g., cache, backups, etc.)

    Hi!
    Thanks for your reply.
    Sure, there are plugins but if you leave everything alone – is it still normal for the date to change? Plugins doesn’t upgrade themselves so there shouldn’t be any activity?

    I know a couple of plugins that use their own directories for cache. Install WordFence on your site and let it scan the site. Check the option that lets it compare themes and plugins to the WP.org repositories.

    Okay, thanks a lot for the tip! 😉
