[resolved] Scanner: wp-config.php "Not Found" (5 posts)

    I just updated to WordPress 3.6.1 and WP Security 4.0.1 and have noticed that the scanner (WP Security > Scanner) cannot find my wp-config.php file. I see it in the root directory of the WordPress install (example.com/blog/), and checked permissions (Owner: FTP User, Group: www-data, Permissions: 644); but WP Security Scanner still cannot find it.

    Am I missing something? It should find it but apparently it cannot. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks,
    AJMaxwell

    Hello, ajmaxwell

    Thank you for showing interest in our plugin

    To solve this issue, please open the plugin's wss-settings.php file in a text editor, locate:
    $_wsdpluginWpConfigPath =''; on line 49 and change it to:
    $_wsdpluginWpConfigPath = $_wsdplugin_base_path.'wp-config.php';

    Im having an issue where it says I dont have sufficient permissions to access this page (using the admin login) when I try let the plugin rename the WordPress database table prefixes (The default WordPress database prefix (wp_) is used)

    Hello, brettyarr

    thank you for your feedback.

    Please let us know the following:
    - are you running the plugin in a MultiSite installation?
    - do you have access to the error log file?
    - does the db user have ALTER rights?

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    Regards,
    Costin
