Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Help! Wordfence won´t scan

  • Resolved zhangjia


    I´ve just installed Wordfence but it won´t perform a scan! When I press “Start a new scan” I get a message on the scan button saying “requesting a new scan”, and a popup in the bottom left corner of my screen saying “wordpress is working”, but after a couple of seconds it disappears and the the scan button reverts back to “Start a new scan”. no results come up. everything on the page is the same as before. I checked in the diagnostics, and there is an error message in red in the Connectivity section:

    Connecting to Wordfence servers (http): OK
    Connecting to Wordfence servers (https): OK
    Connecting back to this site: wp_remote_post() test back to this server failed! Response was: 200 OK<br /> This additional info may help you diagnose the issue.

  • Hi @zhangjia,

    The issue you’re describing is very similar to this one.

    Does it still occur when you switch to a default theme?
