Support » Plugin: NinjaFirewall (WP Edition) - Advanced Security » NinjaFirewall (WP Edition) does not work in XAMPP or IIS on Windows Server

  • Resolved preetinderc



    I have word press sites that use Ninja Firewall Plugin on a Linux server. All is well
    When I rebuild the websites on a Windows server 2012 in IIS () or XAMPP.

    The problem is I can not get the Ninja Firewall plugin to work. I get the following errors depending on the setup I select.

    1) WordPress WAF mode

    Error message: Error: The firewall is not loaded. Make sure that the required lines of code were added to your wp-config.php file.

    2) Full WAF mode (recommended)

    Error Message: Error: The firewall is not loaded.

    I would have expected Ninja Firewall to work in both XAMPP and IIS (where I am using FastCGI and have set the php.ini file correctly)

    Am I getting these issues due to the Windows Server?

    What else can I use in place of Ninja Firewall that will be happy to run in a Windows Environment?

    It is not compatible with Windows server.
    You may try your luck with ModSecurity instead.

    Thanks a lot. I was suspecting this as I had read up online. I was kind of convincing myself it would work as I was emulating (XAMPP) the word press sites.

    Another plugin which i like is All In One WordPress Security and Firewall.

    Once a again many thanks!
