[resolved] [Plugin: Better WP Security] Error when multiple users at same location attempt to access site (3 posts)

    My site is http://www.gethealthwestgeorgia.org.

    It appears that currently when the Better WP Security plugin is active on our site, that if multiple users attempt to access the site at or near the same time a full lockdown occurs. And I get the following email.

    A host,, has been locked out of the WordPress site at http://www.gethealthywestgeorgia.org until Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 at 5:20:37 pm Europe/Stockholm due to too many attempts to open a file that does not exist. You may login to the site to manually release the lock if necessary. After the 15 minutes are up I can then access the site via the WP login screen.

    I've not really changed many settings with in the plugin. I just let it run with what was the plugin recommended as I was installing/activating and setting it up on the site.

    Any thoughts on how to remedy this issue? Thanks for any help.

  3. You've got a bunch of missing resources, scripts/images/css files/etc in the background on your site. The recommended action would be to check the BWPS logs and fix the 404 files it refers to (if my plugin is seeing them then so is Google and the other search engines). Alternatively you can disable 404 detection or increase the lockout threshold in the options to prevent it from locking out as quickly.
