    Looks like this fix did the trick. Firewall seems to be working although it is back in learning mode I’m assuming because I had to delete the wordfence file altogether after 7.1.5.

    Thank you for the update!

    7.1.5 has crashed a few of my sites too, manually removed the wordfence plugin via ftp and installing 7.1.6 now.

    Still having issue after updating to 7.1.6

    Someone found a solution for it?

    Why is the support not answering to that problem?

    It crashed me several sites. I had now to delete manually via FTP the plugin and install it new, but now i get a message “The Wordfence Web Application Firewall cannot run. The configuration files are corrupt or inaccessible by the web server, which is preventing the WAF from functioning. Please verify the web server has permission to access the configuration files. You may also try to rebuild the configuration file by clicking here. It will automatically resume normal operation when it is fixed. ” what i have never been seeing before and i also changed nothing on the server.

    So what we should do know? Or turn that plugin the backside??
