    Several client sites have gotten the “new messages” from WordPress for WordFence E_COMPILE_ERROR

    What do you advise?

    Thanks

    “Your Site is Experiencing a Technical Issue
    Since WordPress 5.2 there is a built-in feature that detects when a plugin or theme causes a fatal error on your site, and notifies you with this automated email.

    In this case, WordPress caught an error with one of your plugins, Wordfence Security.

    Here are the error details for three of them…

    An error of type E_COMPILE_ERROR was caused in line 74 of the file …wp-content/plugins/wordfence/wordfence.php. Error message: require_once(): Failed opening required ‘lib/wordfenceConstants.php’ (include_path=’.:/opt/alt/php73/usr/share/pear’)

    An error of type E_COMPILE_ERROR was caused in line 95 of the file …/plugins/wordfence/lib/wfBrowscap.php. Error message: require(): Failed opening required ‘wfBrowscapCache.php’ (include_path=’.:/opt/alt/php73/usr/share/pear’)

    Hey @sillymoney,

    This means an update could’ve gone wrong. If you’re still experiencing the error you can reinstall a fresh copy of Wordfence to resolve it. However, it can also be caused by getting site hits during the update process, if this is the case you probably don’t see the error now and it resolved itself.

    Please let us know if anything else comes up.

    Thanks,

    Gerroald

    How can we distinguish the difference between 1) the update process went wrong vs 2) site hits during update process?

    Thanks,

    Deb
