Better WP Security conflict. (2 posts)

    Hi, I've noticed than Wordfence is detecting "Malicious IP's" on my .htacces, but the thing is that those IP's are there because Better WP Security plugin is denying access to them, precisely beacause they are malicious.

    I imagine that this can also happen with other plugins that deny IP's via .htaccess.
    There is any way to prevent this behaviour by default, rather than manually one by one? Maybe a plugin fix, or a standard config setting.

    Is Better WP Security putting new IPs there on the fly?

    If not, just mark the .htaccess file as "ignore until it changes".

    If Better WP Security *is* adding new IPs to .htaccess on a regular basis, I'd just ignore the WF alerts.
