    Hi

    You can run both plugins together.
    NinjaFirewall will do most of its job even before WordPress is loaded, so there shouldn’t be any issue.

    Thank you very much for the response!

    Just a heads up, I installed Ithemes security, and then wasn’t able to do much of anything on my website. When I tried to deactivate a plugin or update a user, it would log me out. I had to manually remove Ithemes security, and then I was able to use my site as normal.

    I am not sure if the conflict is caused by Ninja Firewall or another plugin (Or even a setting), but I am getting rid of it.

    @subwebsites Can you clarify which problem you are facing?

    I notice theres a LOT of near similar features to iThemes Security, so not knowing exactly what to activate and what not to activate is not listed anywhere for conflicts meaning this could take a week to configure with iThemes, visa versa

    Is there some docs that inform us whats better activated from each plugin so they work in sync?

    There’s no doc about both plugins running together on the same website, but since NinjaFirewall will always work first, it is better to disable all iThemes features that are already available in NinjaFirewall, because they won’t be triggered at all.

    Thanks for te reply.

    How will I know where are the settings for Firewall#2: http://prntscr.com/nf5hhz
    to disable so I can use settings from iThemes??.

    Silly me thought there was a section #1 #2 #3 as per image I would know where all the settings where located.

    #1: Settings are mostly all in the “Firewall Policies” section.
    #2: “Event Notifications”, “Login Protection” and a few in the “Firewall Policies > Basic Policies > WordPress” section.
    #3: “Firewall Policies > Advanced Policies > HTTP headers”.

    @subwebsites I removed iThemes security because it didn’t get along with Ninja Firewall. I cannot remember details as it has been a while.
