    Ignore Hidden Plugin Folders & Files:
    Add Ignore rules using plugin folder names or file names.
    Use a comma and a space between folder and/or file names.
    Example: plugin-folder-name, example-file-name.php

    data entered in text box:

    /home3/abzutwoc/public_html/wp-content/plugins/default-to-gd-master (3).zip,
    default-to-gd-master (3).zip

    HPF ignore rules are just a folder name or file name without a folder/file path.  Example: plugin-folder-name, example-file-name.php.  In this case there is whitespace/blank space in the file naming convention, which cannot be ignored since whitespace/blank space is not a valid PHP file naming convention.  You should not have any zip files in your /plugins/ folder.  So just delete the default-to-gd-master (3).zip file and any other zip files that you find under your /plugins/ folder.  The default-to-gd-master (3).zip file appears to have something to do with this plugin (Sets GD as default WP_Image_Editor class) that no longer exists > https://github.com/getsource/default-to-gd.


    Thanks. Deleted the zip file. Solved.
