Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security » Cant access Wordfence servers

  • Resolved supawiz6991


    So I got the “Cant access our servers” warning and upon checking my error logs I found this:

    mod_fcgid: stderr: PHP Warning: curl_exec() has been disabled for security reasons

    So it appears that my host has disabled Curl which you use to communicate with your servers.

    Is there anyway to use this plugin without curl?

    We’ve actually built in support for sites without curl via file_get which has the ability to fetch URL’s. So it should work. It may be that our failover function which switches to using file_get is not detecting that curl_exec is disabled.

    Can you ask your host to enable curl support?
