Support » Plugin: WordPress File Monitor Plus » How to set the file check root?

  • I’m unclear on how to set the file check root. When I use the default and do a manual scan, I get this result:

    Warning: filesize() [function.filesize]: stat failed for /home/content/93/7927593/html/stats/logs in /home/content/93/7927593/html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-file-monitor-plus/classes/wpfmp.class.php on line 290
    Warning: filemtime() [function.filemtime]: stat failed for /home/content/93/7927593/html/stats/logs in /home/content/93/7927593/html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-file-monitor-plus/classes/wpfmp.class.php on line 293
    Warning: md5_file(/home/content/93/7927593/html/stats/logs) [function.md5-file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/93/7927593/html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-file-monitor-plus/classes/wpfmp.class.php on line 296

    And then when I changed the file check root to just “/” (the root of my website?) I got a whole page of errors.

  • chmod the permission

    The permission for the root of my whole website? That sounds dangerous.

    Oh no no i mean you may need to modify the permission for the directory itself or maybe “logs” is a file based on what the errors are saying. It seems your /logs may need to update its permissions to the wordpress preferred defaults of 755 (for directories) or if its a file then 644.

    But as a heads up the check root should be set to your home directory (where your wordpress is located). For example lets say ive installed wordpress site at: /home/kimberly (so that means my /wp-content would located at /home/kimberly/wp-conent). Then i would set this plugin’s check root field to be: /home/kimberly.

    Maybe the best solution is to just have this plugin ignore that file/directory entirely by adding it to your exclusion list.

    Let me know how things go. I am intrigued by your problem

    Just going to second what Kimberly said. “/” is unlikely to be the root of your website, and you probably need to fine tune the setting for the “File Check Root” a little bit.

    For example, it might be something like:


    (Note: This examples pretends/assumes SkyCaptain is your web hosting account name. Substitute that part accordingly.)

    I’d be very surprised if the logs folder was inside your public_html folder, so this change should resolve that issue as well. If I’m mistaken, then definitely exclude them because they are going to give you constant alerts.
