    Hello, the plugin w3-total-cache is making this kind of files:

    /wp-content/w3tc/min/4084f993.js.files
    /wp-content/w3tc/min/4653f08a.css.files
    /wp-content/w3tc/objectcache/e/2/0/e2047f1836b6b230165e068644d6147d
    /wp-content/w3tc/objectcache/1/4/8/148d74c16f091676356f519f2696fbe6
    /wp-content/w3tc/objectcache/f/5/9/f59488b813022ad290a366a8ddbe74e0
    /wp-content/w3tc/pgcache/0/1/1/011bcb2ee2a5cffe481b7558097a1cad
    /wp-content/w3tc/pgcache/0/3/f/03f45f1b1a0612da12ae2fe3d99d276f
    /wp-content/w3tc/pgcache/f/a/6/fa69898fb9eb6d5a18ab88c95c94ebbf
    ...etc....

    Is there any way to exclude them?

    Yes.

    In the exclude files folders settings enter:

    /full/path/to/wp-content/w3tc/*

    Thank you 🙂

    Hi I can’t seem to get this plugin to exclude folders. I have the following in my exclude list:
    /wp-content/w3tc/*
    /wp-content/uploads/*
    /wp-content/cache/*
    /wp-content/w3tc-cache/*
    /error_log
    /wp-content/managewp/backups/*

    and yet I still get notified daily of changes to files within these folders. What am I doing wrong? I never had problems excluding folders in WordPress File Monitor (pre-fork).

    Again I re-iterate you need to include the full path to the folders you want to exclude. So this includes the document root setting you have.

    I understand, thanks. You should really update the documentation as this is not at all intuitive and clearly a lot of people are having the problem. Given that I specified the document root in the field above it, I would think that it would automatically be used for any other paths specified. Thanks and keep up the good work!

    Hi Scott,
    I’m still having trouble excluding one particular directory. Every other directory is excluding fine except for this one. On a near daily basis I get the following email:

    Files Removed:
    /wp-content/themes/dailyedition/cache/index.html
    /wp-content/themes/dailyedition/cache/timthumb_cacheLastCleanTime.touch
    /wp-content/themes/dailyedition/cache/timthumb_int_18252e00fee73a40a7e7aeb9d1f2d729.timthumb.txt

    However my Dirs/Files To Ignore contains the following path:

    /home/connec23/public_html/wp-content/themes/dailyedition/cache/*

    My home path is:
    /home/connec23/public_html

    Can you please tell me what I’m doing wrong? Thanks for your help!
