  • Hey @sprockettechweb,

    This sounds like a WordPress plugin update that didn’t go well. Can you please try reinstalling Wordfence and let me know if it helps?

    Please let me know how it goes.

    Thanks,

    Hey @sprockettechweb,

    We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’ve gone ahead and marked this thread as resolved.

    Please feel free to open another thread if you’re still having issues with Wordfence.

    Thanks,

    Gerroald

    I have the same issue with a certain site. Anytime I update any plugins. I get a critical error. I then rename the plugins folder and then site loads, rename it back and activate all plugins. Everything works, except for the wordfence plugin. I then need to manually remove and reset the entire wordfence plugin and tables and then it activates wordfence.
    I dont know what the issue is.
