    Hello,
    I got this error… it should probably get caught if there is a failure here.

    [04-Sep-2016 08:00:21 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘Exception’ with message ‘There was an error connecting to the the Wordfence scanning servers: cURL error 28: Connection timed out after 10000 milliseconds’ in /srv/data/web/vhosts/mysite.com/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/wordfence/lib/wfAPI.php:81

  • Hello

    I’ve got the same problem.
    In WordPress admin, when I try to run a scan, I also get:
    [Sep 05 21:03:48] Call to Wordfence API to resolve IPs failed: There was an error connecting to the the Wordfence scanning servers: cURL error 3: malformed

    According to older threads, this problem was thought to be related to WordPress 4.6 beta and solved by a Wordfence update prior to WordPress 4.6 release.

    I’m running WordPress 4.6 and Wordfence 6.1.8.
    In the diagnostics screen, connectivity section, both lines show “OK”.
    I tried disabling “Enable SSL Verification”, and still got the problem.
    Other WordPress websites are running on the same server, and Wordfence is working fine on those.

    Please let me know if there is additional info you need to understand this issue.
    Best regards,

    Kasutan

    Hey Guys,

    Are you still seeing this issue? Hopefully this was resolved with one of the recent updates, but let me know.

    Hello,

    Indeed, I saw that issue was part of the 6.1 WordPress update. The latest appearance of this error in my logs is September 7th.

    Looks like it is solved, thank you for checking with us (and thank you for a great plugin!)

    Kasutan
