A few of my client’s have their sites hosted on WPEngine. When MainWP runs its normal security scans, it always reports that “readme.html file has not been removed from WordPress root” and warns, “Removing the file on WPEngine hosting can cause issues. If you need to remove the file, please consult the WPEngine support first.”
The problem is, even after WPEngine support removes the file, it just keeps showing back up after every WordPress update. Because of this, I hardly ever have 0 security issues, and I’m always having to check the details to make sure it’s not something new – only to find it’s that same “readme.html” issue. So, over time, I begin to ignore the security warning. Not ideal.
Is there any way to disable the “readme.html” check on selected sites?
Thanks in advance!
