I too would very much like the clear log button back. It is much better to give users the option to view and then clear the old logs to get a clean start.
Buu, I want Clear Logs button back!
I have several valid reasons already exposed by the other users.
Covering your tracks after hacking a website? oh come on, if anybody can hack your website, will surely delete the ithemes tables in the database, and ever delete the plugin to forcefully switch off the security. Maybe the lack of a Clean Logs button could even lead to a major damage since the tracks has to be more aggressively deleted…
I vote for YES to bring BACK the ‘Clear Logs’ button or a new option for better management (cleanup) the iThemes logs.
By the way … decreasing the ‘Days to Keep Database Logs’ does not help. The old logs are then still kept in the database. Bug?
I would advice iThemes team to give this some more attention … otherwise someone else will come up with a ‘plugin’ (outside iThemes Sec) to do this.
Precisely! Does not matter if I left just one day to keep database logs. Old logs never disappear – and the records keep growing… Bad idea to remove that button!
Product deleted. Let me know if the clear logs button comes back. I may reconsider. For now, it is gone from my sites.
