Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Uninstalled and won’t active anymore

  • Resolved Bob Mashouf


    I’m using wordfence for long time and I ‘m used to it as a security solution for wp websites. but on one of my websites it uninstalled itself when I was trying to reinstall and activate it, got this message

    Warning: require_once(wfConfig.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home3/greenrug/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordfence/lib/wfUtils.php on line 2
    Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required ‘wfConfig.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home3/greenrug/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordfence/lib/wfUtils.php on line 2

    I’d be appreciate if help me to know whats the problem and how to solve it.
    Thank you

  • Hi Bob,
    That’s very odd, we rarely see such a behavior. It could be that your server is running out of space or a temporary performance issue on the server.

    Please zip up the current Wordfence folder and email it to “alaa [at] wordfence [dot] com” for further investigation, but for now you can delete the plugin folder at (/wp-content/plugins/) and re-install the plugin again from WordPress plugins repository. Finally, may I know which hosting provider are you using?


    Thank you for replying me. for the better result, I already changed my hosting service to the better one.
    now I’m using this lovely plugin again.
    best regards.
