    Have an issue with hundreds of 404 errors from my IP, (854 now). I'm a little concerned my host may decide I am a security risk or something.:P Appreciate any help you might be able to provide this noob. (TLDR; Please explain like I am 5)

    I did search but came up with nothing describing my issue.
    I have a newer site under development, and noticed the high number of 404 errors being reported when Better WP Security was installed.

    1 - Better WP Security 3.5.2 /Active
    2 - Hidden Tags 0.1.1 /Active
    3 - Jetpack 2.2.5 /Now Deactivated
    4 - Limit Login Attempts 1.7.1 /Active
    5 - Ozh' Dropdown Menu 3.6.5 /Active
    6 - Ultimate Tiny MCE 4.5 /Active
    7 - WooCommerce 2.0.10 /Active
    8 - WordPress Importer 0.6.1 /Active

    - 404 errors are generated from my IP address.

    - Every time I view a page, edit a post, save a draft, etc etc, I refresh my logs in Better WP Security and see the number of 404s. jump by the amount of my activity within the site.

    - As I recall Jetpack was installed almost immediately after installing WordPress. Better WP Security was installed a few months ago, and this is when I noticed the issue.

    - Deactivated plugins one at a time to determine if they were the issue. If it was shown a plugin was not an issue it was reactivated and I moved onto another. Issue ceased when I deactivated Jetpack.

    Thanks again. If you need anything, just let me know.

    Are all 404 errors related to this URL?

    The problem could be caused by Ozh's menu plugin, as it was already reported here:

    Could you try to deactivate this plugin, and see if it helps?

    Thank you Jeremy for the quick reply!

    That is the URL the 404s are related to as shown in a snippet from the security log above. And you're right, deactivating the Ozh plugin cured the problem, so thank you a ton. :)

    The fact thought that I had also stopped the 404 errors by deactivating Jetpack suggests that there is a possible degree of conflict between Jetpack and the Ozh plugin. Has anyone had a chance to discuss this with the Ozh developer?... because that is one sweet little plugin, giving users about 20% more window or desktop to play with. Are there any other similar plugins you suggest which perform the same function as Ozh?

    Is the post you linked to suggesting a work around by installing a cache plugin?


    Anyhow, thank you again for your help.

    You can contact Ozh via the support forums. It seems other users already opened a thread about this issue:
