Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » WF breaking WP All Import importing

  • wasanajones


    thanks for this great plugin

    any ideas on what settings can be changed to keep Wordfence from interfering with the WP All Import import updating the DB?

    it allows WP All Import to import the file to be uploaded and read (nodes visible to be mapped), but the next to the last step before posting is blocked

    there is no WF error message, but the admin page is stripped to almost blank but has links to WP All Import documentation. since admin is wiped out I can’t see anything wrong in Query Monitor.

    I contacted my Host and asked them to look at server logs but they are not seeing anything.

    I tried setting Web Application Firewall Status to learning mode, and disabled but still blocked

    Disable Code Execution for Uploads directory – disabled; still blocked

    deleted and reinstalled Wordfence with delete tables

    it is for sure caused by conflict with WP All Import and Wordfence. this is a WP multisite with WF network activated

    any help appreciated

    the actual error is from using too much memory

    not sure how/why Wordfence is making WP All Import take up a lot of memory, but it is

    (everything works fine with Wordfence disabled)

    Hi @wasanajones,

    Can you provide me with your host’s maximum memory quota?

    Can you take a screenshot of what you see at the last step (where it’s blocked/stripped of all content)?

    Before reaching that step, can you open the developer console (F12) and then going to the last step? Look at the console and network tab to see if anything is there. (Such as 404 errors in the network tab, or JavaScript errors in the console)




    Hi – thanks for the response

    PHP and WP Memory allocation is 256M, the server has 4GB RAM

    good tip about using F12 dev console — but right now I am no longer testing and have disabled Wordfence — I invested about 8 hours in the whole process and while I am a firm supporter and advocate of Wordfence — I’ve had to move on to another solution until I can revisit and see what happens

    I’ll be creating a new website to test on

    this is a WP Multisite Network, Wordfence network activated


    Hi –

    can’t live without either plugin !


    produces unformatted page containing just a couple of links

    using F12 browser console see error
    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 ()

    wordpress multisite network, wordfence network activated, wp all import activated per site. WP All Import works fine right up to the step just before the import

    no idea if this is happening on other installs or just my particular setup


    Exact same issue here.
    Would love to know the resolution.
