Support » Plugin: Sucuri Security - Auditing, Malware Scanner and Security Hardening » Cannot log into Site after updating plugin

  • Resolved blkcatgal


    I updated the plugin on a test site and now I cannot log into that site. Apparently others are having this same problem and some have found a workaround to fix. However, I am quite technically challenged and do not understand how to fix this. I was able to get into my site by renaming the securi plugin via FTP which essentially deactivated it. After that, I am lost as to what to do. Good thing I tried this on my test site first before updating my real site. My real site still has the old version of the plugin installed.

    Also, now the Audit files of my real site are showing that the following file has been added to my core files: .sucuri-sss-resume-fa862e90c17d032eb3f26e9092398dbd.php

    I don’t know what this file is and whehter it should be there.

    Please help. Thank you.

  • same issues here. after plugin upgrade we can’t login to the site, php timeouts and 504 error.
    deactivated sucuri, and login works again.

    I read through that thread. As I said, I am not very technical and I do not understand what needs to be done. I’m lucky I was able to deactivate the plugin through FTP. That’s about as far as I can go. I don’t know how to optimize a database and it’s not something I am comfortable with doing. And who knows if I try these steps I don’t run into more problems. Hopefully a developer (Yorman) will see these threads and a fix will be made.

    We also are having this issue. We cannot log into any of our sites that have Sucuri installed and active. If we rename or move the Sucuri plugin folder, the issue goes away. We are aware of this thread but hope that this is a priority fix because it is locking all current Sucuri users out of their website if they do not have FTP.

    Thank you!

    having same issue.

    error log says:

    PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 120 seconds exceeded in /wp-content/plugins/sucuri-scanner/src/cache.lib.php on line 161, referer:

    I’m also having the same problem.

    getting this in error log:

    PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 120 seconds exceeded in /path/to/my/site/wp-content/plugins/sucuri-scanner/src/cache.lib.php on line 161, referer:

    For those locked out of their sites, disabling the plugin by renaming the folder resolves the issue.

    Add me to the list of those with this issue. Leaving deactivated until developer issue and update to address the issue.

    I apologize for the issues. We are working on a fix and it should be resolved soon. It doesn’t affect every plugin user, but some sites are having high latency when reaching out our API server, which is causing the timeouts.

    This should be fixed on v1.8.7. Please try it out and let us know.

    Again, sorry for the trouble it caused :/

    I’ve just tested the latest commit and it seems to have resolved the issue in my case! I can login, create users, etc. essentially use any form submission now that calls your api and it’s no longer timing out

    TY for the attention to this
