    I have a multisite and each site has its own domain. Is there any special setup required, or do I just network activate?

    No specific setup, just activate it. Its dashboard will be accessible from the main site only, and it will protect all sites in your network.

    In my case it does not work. I also have a multisite, some of the sites are mapped to other domains (via domain mapping). If I run the test from

    it works on the main site/domain. But on sites with other domains, it fails completely:(

    Any idea?

    Try the troubleshooter script:

    Test it by accessing the main domain, and also a child site.
    Then post the results (you can anonymize the paths).

    Also, go to “NinjaFirewall > Network” and make sure that the “Display NinjaFirewall status icon in the admin bar of all sites in the network” option is enabled. Then log in to a child site and check if you see NF’s icon in the admin bar.

    Thank you for your message!

    I activated the status icon and did the text with wp-check.

    This is the result, it’s exactly the same result by accessing the main domain and a child site:

    Log out of WordPress (so that you aren’t whitelisted) and try to trigger the firewall on the main site and any – or all- child site:

    Are you blocked by the firewall?

    I tried, the result:

    the main site is blocked

    the site is NOT blocked

    the site with mapped domain is NOT blocked

    maybe there are other settings I have to activate? we have some rules in our security header, for instance X-XSS-Protection, maybe one of this settings is a reason?

    Your setup doesn’t seem to work in “WordPress WAF” mode.
    Can you try to enable the “Full WAF” mode from the firewall’s dashboard? During the setup, select “.user.ini” as you are running PHP FPM.

    it works! Thank you very much!! đŸ™‚
