[resolved] [Plugin: Better WP Security] Identifying Error Log (6 posts)

    I have a file called "error_log" in my wp-admin folder. Is this from Better WP Security? If so, why is the error log almost 700KB when I've clicked "Remove Data" from the View Logs tab and it currently says 0 on all the options.

    I just took a closer look at the error log and it has "Better WP Security" all over it. Including a very long section of text with html tags. Here's a small section:

    <p>Here’s another example. Last winter a school contacted me about a hacked WordPress site they were running. This site ran their entire department including all faculty, marketing, etc so it’s importance to the department was higher than most.

    So my question still stands: why is this error log in my wp-admin folder?

    My other question was going to be: "why is I clicked "Remove" Data is it still almost 700KB?" but I've just checked my folder again and the error log is no longer there. What is going on?

  3. That error log is not associated with Better WP Security and as such I cannot help you with it.

    Ok. Where is the log for Better WP Security?

  5. There is a "View Logs" section in the security menu in the Dashboard
