BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin
[Plugin: BackWPup] WARNING: Link xxxxxx not followed. But why ? (3 posts)

    Hi, A great plugin. Thanks.

    Recently I am getting warning messages, like:

    WARNING: Link xxxxxx/xxxx not followed.

    The files that give this warning do not exist in these directories, so that is correct.
    I did do a table cleanup (with Plugins Garbage Collector) and these files to not ring a bell.

    How can I get rid of these messages?
    Where does BackWPup get these from ?

    is this a hidden Ling '.xxxx' With Link it means a unix filsystem link to a file or dirictory.

    To remove the massage exclude the directory/file.
    To Backup the linked directory/file put it in the includes.

    Okay thanks.
    No not hidden. Just not existing (any more ?).

    I have put it in the exclude list.
    It is a double message about two file.

    However the question still remains. Where did it get from ? I have not included these files. If they have been removed by a WP upgrade (probably) then I would expect BackWPup to not find them and put in a job.

    Not a big deal but still a misery. Thanks,
