Wordfence only allows me to see 1 of 107 files
I have recently had trouble with one of my sites where Wordfence showed over 100 critical issues. This website already had 109 ignored files from when I first set it up with Ionos and there were unidentified files. After discussion with Wordfence I marked them ‘ignore until changed’.
In order to check what to do with the critical issues I set up a test site and uploaded a copy of the site to that. Then I deleted the files and checked that the site still worked. So far so good.
Then I thought I would also delete the ignored until changed files and see what happened. I deleted them WITHOUT removing the ‘ignored’ label, everything seemed fine. But now every time I run a scan it tells me that one file is unknown + so many others, but I can not see the ‘others’, only the one file.
If I delete that and run the scan again I get the same message of 1 file unknown + so many others, but that figure is one less. This is a very labour intensive way of getting rid of them!
It seems that deleting the files without taking the ‘ignore’ label off has messed things up and that deleting them has thrown up a ‘change in the file’. I want to remove all the files which were previously ignored and which are showing up individually but how do I get to see them?
This is what is shown
Unknown file in WordPress core: wp-includes/blocks/audio/php.ini (+ 105 more)
Of course the actual file changes each time.
How do I see the rest?
Thanks for any help, Mary
