Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Rate Limiting with Wp Rocket Cache

  • Resolved themadproducer


    Rate Limiting is NOT working with WP Rocket.
    It immediately works if I disable WP Rocket.

    To test, I set 2 human page views per minute = 1 minute throttle.
    This way the rate limit should kick in right away.

    I’ve been using both plugins for ages but never thought they caching might be incompatible with WF Rate Limiting. Did I miss a setting?

    FYI, I do not use the WF Firewall.

    Hi @themadproducer

    If the web server is sending cached HTML copies of site pages for legitimate site URLs, without the need for any PHP to be processed, then WordPress and Wordfence won’t be loaded and Wordfence therefore can’t carry out any rate limiting.
