I just installed Wordfence for the first time, now I recieve this error message:
“Wordfence could not get an API key from the Wordfence scanning servers when it activated. You can try to fix this by going to the Wordfence “options” page and hitting “Save Changes”. This will cause Wordfence to retry fetching an API key for you. If you keep seeing this error it usually means your WordPress server can’t connect to our scanning servers. You can try asking your WordPress host to allow your WordPress server to connect to noc1.wordfence.com.”
How do I solve this problem? Also, does this mean that Wordfence does not work in it’s entirety or are only certain features affected (I received some basic data from the live traffic scanning already)? Please note that I also sent you my activity log a few minutes ago.
Of course I will also check with my hosting provider, but I am hoping to be able to get soem feedback from you as well.
I also have a second question regarding the firewall rules feature. Can you give me (or direct me to) further information on how I should configure it? Currently it is deactivated, but I would like to set up some basic (not to strict yet affective) rules in the future.
Thanks in advance for answering.
