    Hi

    I’ve used your excellent plugin to clean up some of my sites, I have a doubt can you please let me know how to Scan sub directories in of primary domain. Those subdirectories are placed outside public_html. Looking forward for the reply.

    TIA

    The easiest way to include other directory trees in the complete scan of the public_html directory would be to create a symlink in to those outside directories and put it inside the public_html directory. However, this is not necessarily a good idea because any directory outside the public_html is outside it for a reason and it is generally safer to keep private files outside the public_html directory. It is also lees likely to get hacked if it is outside the public_html directory, can I ask what these other directories are and why you would want to scan them?

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply.
    Actually those subdirectories are subdomains of a primary domain, I’m not sure why they are not under public_html. When I scanned the primary domain it scanned all the files under public_html but those outside were left off. So was asking if there’s any way to scan those folders also.

    The best way to scan those other sites would be to install my plugin on each of them individually and scan them each from within their own wp-admin.
