Support » Plugin: Sucuri Security - Auditing, Malware Scanner and Security Hardening » SiteCheck error when wordpress in subdirectory

  • Resolved sangfroidweb


    The “WordPress Integrity” check seems to consistently return this error:

    SiteCheck error: Unable to properly scan your site. 404 Not Found

    For websites where the “WordPress Address” setting differs from the “Site Address”. For example, where settings are:

    WordPress Address (URL):
    Site Address (URL):

    Is there some way to fix this?

    @sangfroidweb Could you provide one of the domains?



    This is our site, which exhibits the error:

    No ideas on this, @g0tr00t ? It affects a lot of our clients. I would love to know if there’s something that can be done….

    @sangfroidweb I’m sorry for the delay! Holidays and such got me distracted, but you should be able to fix this issue by going to the Sucuri Security – Settings page and then scroll down/find the Malware Scan Target where you can input the directory that is hosting the WP installation:

    Malware Scan Target
    The remote malware scanner provided by the plugin is powered by Sucuri SiteCheck, a service that takes a publicly accessible URL and scans it for malicious code. If your website is not visible to the Internet, for example, if it is hosted in a local development environment or a restricted network, the scanner will not be able to work on it. Additionally, if the website was installed in a non-standard directory the scanner will report a “404 Not Found” error. You can use this option to change the URL that will be scanned.

    Hope this helps you!

    I appreaciate your reply. And Happy New Year! That seems to have fixed the issue. Thanks!
