Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » There has been a critical error on your website

  • Resolved Trible


    After deactivating EVERY plugin, then reactivating them one by one, I discovered that the Wordfence Security plugin was causing this error. Once deactivated the problem was resolved, so I followed proper protocol and deleted your plugin.

    Then I reinstalled it BUT this issue was NOT resolved, so I had to delete your plugin again.

    Is there any way of fixing this issue?

    Thank you in advance,

    Hi @trible,

    There’s a lot of different reasons why There has been a critical error on your website will show up.

    Can you check the error_log from PHP? There should be some fatal errors to report from there. If you’re not sure where the error_log is, can you reach out to your hosting provider to see where it is?




    Thank you Dave, I do understand.

    Have replaced this plugin with another, and now all is just fine.

    WordPress even asked if I wanted to re-insert my site’s .htaccess file once I activated the other plugin (am guessing the scripts must be close to your plugin’s), and I clicked on NO to be safe as that is apparently what caused at least 2 links to fail.

    Once I followed the other security plugin’s instructions, was home free… and, I ended up with a BONUS… I am able to eliminate 2 more plugins due to their additional options provided.

    Being a believer of “everything happens for a reason”, I gotta’ admit that what started out to be a bit scary turned out in my site’s favour.

    Thank YOU for you quick response.



    I also get this message!
