Help with ignoring directory in users homedir

Post by jumptofta »

I keep getting false positive for (cxswatch Scanning /home/user/public_html/wp-content/cache/supercache/www.userdomain.com).

I have already put (hdir:/public_html/wp-content/cache/supercache) in cxs.ignore and restarted the service.

I still keep seeing many email regarding the same false positive any help would be great.

Hi,

can you paste your cxs.ignore file and also a copy of the logs where it is showing these directories being scanned.

Not sure I can be much help but it may help others to investigate the issue for you.

Just to add.

I added the following to my cxs.ignore and restarted the service:

Code: Select all

hdir:/public_html/wp-content/cache
hdir:/public_html/wp-content/wflogs
hfile:/public_html/error_log
And then get this in my logs:

Code: Select all

Seems we have to add

Code: Select all

--ignore /etc/cxs/cxs.ignore 
to the cxs command in /etc/cxs/cxswatch.sh and then restart cxswatch.

I've just done this and restarted. looks as though the --ignore is missing from the command.
