  • What exactly happened? What were the symptoms on your website?

    Happened to me too!!!!!!!
    Don’t Update



    Latest update killed my website. It rewrites wp-config.php file.

    I had the same issue. I recovered a backup of the wp-config.php file and the main page (where all posts are listed) worked well. But all specific posts and pages were giving 404 errors… After disabling iThemes security it started working. Upon enabling it again everything was back to normal without any further action of configuration changes from my side.
    Although everything is now working, I ask myself if it’s time to look for another security plugin?

    Latest updates broke my site too. Host said to disable ithemes security. I did that and now can see the front end of site but can’t access the backend. I had used ithemes security plugin’s “hide backend” feature. No solution yet and Ithemes security is asking me to buy pro to get help removing all traces of the plugin.
    Restoring the wp-config file didn’t help.
    Sad, I’ve used this plugin for years.

    Has anyone else found another solution?
