Delete Old Core Files (WordPress Blog)WordPress is a absolutely free and open source software for bloggers and webmasters. WordPress updates latest versions and security releases. When new WordPress version upgraded, some files become useless. Many people delete those old core files manually, but some times they delete important files by mistake.

On the other hand, if you do not delete old core files then these files can be used by hackers to hide wormhole code. In this simple tutorial, I will tell you how to delete old WordPress core files with the help of plugin.

How to Delete Old Core Files (WordPress Blog)

  • Install and Activate Old Core Files Plugin. 
  • Go to Plugin Settings Page Located Under Tools » Old Core Files

This is new released plugin, So there is no delete button. But, now you have a list of unwanted files, you can delete them manually using FTP. If you want to stay on an even safer side, then start using Sucuri.
