    Combining Wordfence with Buddypress and Events manager pro causes white screen.
    Here are some testing results of the three plugins:

    These first three were using bp as the main focus:
    1st. Buddypress with Wordfence plugins activated = yes they work together
    2nd Buddypress with Events manager pro activated = yes the work together
    3rd Buddypress plust Events Manager pro and Wordfence = no the do not work togehter

    These next two are with Events Manager pro as the main focus:
    1st Events manager with Wordfence = yes they work together
    2nd Events manger with Buddypress = yes they work together
    3rd all three = no they do not work together

    Hi Steve,

    This is almost always because you're running out of memory, not because of a plugin incompatability. Please log a support call with your hosting provider and they'll check your web server error log and confirm this.

    It has to do with how many plugins you have active and what the combined memory usage is.

    Regards,

    Mark.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have contacted the hosting company. I have a dedicated server with 8gig of memory. The process records show only 59% being utilized at the peek.

    I have increased the php memory to 300MB.

    They asked if I should inquire about the Wordfence for the dedicated server vs each site. Is this an option?

    Next, are there Firewall Rules, Alerts, Scans and Other options that can be tweaked to not use as much memory?

    Update: Nope! The solution mentioned above did not work.

    Memory test:
    "Wordfence Memory benchmarking utility version 4.0.3.
    This utility tests if your WordPress host respects the maximum memory configured
    in their php.ini file, or if they are using other methods to limit your access to memory.

    --Starting test--
    Current maximum memory configured in php.ini: 64M
    Current memory usage: 60.00M
    Setting max memory to 90M.
    Starting memory benchmark. Seeing an error after this line is not unusual. Read the error carefully
    to determine how much memory your host allows. We have requested 90 megabytes.
    Completing test after benchmarking up to 80.25 megabytes.
    --Test complete.--

    Congratulations, your web host allows you to use at least 80.25 megabytes of memory for each PHP process hosting your WordPress site."

    I'm a little confused. I'm replying to someone with the username "steve.athenainsurance" but getting a response from "LoneWolf95665". Are you the same person? If not, I'm happy to help you but LoneWolf please start a different thread if you need assistance.

    I'm waiting for steve to reply. Leaving this topic open until I hear back.

    Thanks.

    Quoting your message and replying inline prefixed by MDM:

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have contacted the hosting company. I have a dedicated server with 8gig of memory. The process records show only 59% being utilized at the peek.

    I have increased the php memory to 300MB.

    MDM: That should be plenty.

    They asked if I should inquire about the Wordfence for the dedicated server vs each site. Is this an option?

    MDM: Sorry I don't understand what your'e saying.

    Next, are there Firewall Rules, Alerts, Scans and Other options that can be tweaked to not use as much memory?

    MDM: No. We're already very memory efficient.

    Update: Nope! The solution mentioned above did not work.

    Memory test:

    Hello. For the part you do not understand... Do you have a "dedicatd" Linux server software that protects the "entire" dedicated server... verses.. a plugin for each site in wordpress?

    So, I guess the problem remains that the plugins to not work together and there is no resolve.. something will have to give.

    And, I have several licenses for some six to eight domains and was counting on the harmony of the plugins..

    Now? I have to begin to look at alternatives... unless...the is a resolve.

    Hi,

    If you have paid wordence licenses, please log a support ticket at support.wordfence.com and we'll give you priority support there.

    Wordfence works on dedicated servers and on shared servers, but you will need once paid license for each WordPress site if you're using the paid version. Otherwise you can just use the free version.

    Regards,

    Mark.
