Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » It was great until last update

  • thedrumdoctor


    I had it installed on a Woocommerce site for a while until a recent update.

    The dreaded white screen of death occurred so I turned on PHP debugging and I was getting a constant memory errors in the WordPress core files, but nothing from the plugins.

    I switched off every plugin and it still persisted.

    I got the host to increase the PHP memory limit to 512Mb and the WSOD still wouldn’t go away.

    So I switched all my plugins back on and continued with verbose debugging and at last, received a fatal error message directly pointing to Wordfence. I uninstalled Wordfence and the site went back to normal.

    My guess is when I switched off all the plugins and I was still getting the WSOD, it was a cache issue server-side, as I tried every different browser to check the site whilst it was on the WSOD.

    I only ever wanted Wordfence for the malicious logins attempts, but now I’ve installed Jetpack.
