Support » Plugin: NinjaFirewall (WP Edition) - Advanced Security » Locked out all users besides admin ´”You are not allowed to perform this task.”

  • Resolved hub88


    First all this firewall is great !

    I seem to have run into a problem everything looked like its working fine but then i tried out to view the page on my phone (not logged in) and i get the message
    “You are not allowed to perform this task.” on all pages and subpages.

    I tracked down the problem to one setting in the Firewall Policies
    Firewall Policies
    General : [X] Block attempts to modify important WordPress settings

    After disabling this setting the message disappears and i can access the site like i normally would.

    I would rather not leave this disabled what can i do ?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Did you go to the “Firewall Log” and check the reason why you were blocked? Also, did you receive an email with all details, including a PHP backtrace as an attachment?

    That’s scary if you’re blocked by this option while you aren’t logged in: it would mean you have something (a plugin? a theme?) that is attempting to modify options that should only be modified by an admin.



    After checking the log it turned out that the error was sitting in front the screen ;- )

    i had forgotten that i had an old urlrewrite in the config file after fixing that the “attacks” on the server stopped. Thank you very much for your help
