Wordfence Security
[resolved] Unable to scan (4 posts)

    Wordfence is unable to scan with this error:
    "This usually indicates your permissions are so strict that your web server can't read your WordPress directory."

    This happens even with permissions set to 777

    What are other possible situations that would prevent a scan?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You might be running a windows web server to get this error. Is that the case?

    Regards,

    Mark.

    Yes the server is Windows, not my choice :(

    Yes I'm sorry but Wordfence is not supported on Windows at the moment.

    Regards,

    Mark.
