Since installing BruteProtect to my WP powered website I’ve noticed that my sites “wp_options” database table has suddenly gone from 750 entries to 1185 and counting. All of which are formatted as such:
The IP addresses for both types of entries appear to be identical meaning there’s an entry for each IP address for:
And then another entry for the same IP address for:
These entries are increasing on a regular basis. Knowing that the more entries in the WP database tables the longer the site load time, is this normal for BruteProtect to keep adding to the “options” tables like it’s doing?
Note: Long ago I changed the prefix to the “wp_options” to something other than “wp” of course, for security purposes.
