  • if we block php in upload, will this plugin work properly?

    Yes, the plugin will work properly.

    The PHP files stored in /wp-content/uploads/sucuri/ are used to store data, not to render content. The plugin can read the files even with the hardening in place. The hardening is only preventing people from accessing this file using a web browser, but the plugin can still access these files from the server itself.

    secondly how to whitelist this sucuri folder in whitlist section

    You don’t need to whitelist the directory.

    Thanks man, appreciate so quick response.
