Hi, I woke up this morning and was recently locked out of one of my sites giving me a 500 internal error. I first tried removing the BWPS additions to the .htaccess file but that didn’t work. I had to get my webhost to look up the problem and they reported this error:
PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/domain/public_html/domain.com/wp-content/plugins/better-wp-security/inc/filecheck.php on line 492
PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/domain/public_html/domain.com/wp-content/plugins/better-wp-security/inc/filecheck.php on line 488
They had to chmod the plugin directory to disable it to get the site accessible again. Anything I can do to avoid this problem? If I just disable the “File Change Detection” option would this resolve this issue?
Also is there a way to to return settings to default or at least turn off the file check by editing the plugin config somehow outside of wordpress? I cant get to the options because the plugin is disabled and if i re-enable it then I cant access the site at all.
