Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security » white screen of OMG!

  • Resolved Lee Rickler


    Working on a project at the moment and just updated to latest WF – Version 4.0.3.
    When we login all we see is the standard white screen. or <~ both work.
    Add user/ pword – log in = white screen.
    Refresh page – white screen.

    If I refresh from the address bar I have to login again ->then goes to white screen again.

    Going direct to works fine.

    Default theme – check
    No plugins whatsoever – check
    Deactivate WF / works fine – check.

    I’ve tried downgrading the plugin a few versions but still no joy.

    It probably means you’re running out of memory. Go to the Wordfence options page, scroll to bottom, click the system info link. Search for memory_limit. I’m guessing it’s set to 32M if you don’t have any other plugins installed and you’re seeing this. Ask your hosting provider for a memory upgrade to fix this.




    Thanks for your reply.

    Maximum memory Wordfence can use: 256mb
    memory_limit 128M 128M

    Wordfence Memory benchmarking utility version 4.0.3.
    This utility tests if your WordPress host respects the maximum memory configured
    in their php.ini file, or if they are using other methods to limit your access to memory.

    –Starting test–
    Current maximum memory configured in php.ini: 128M
    Current memory usage: 42.75M
    Setting max memory to 90M.
    Starting memory benchmark. Seeing an error after this line is not unusual. Read the error carefully
    to determine how much memory your host allows. We have requested 90 megabytes.
    Completing test after benchmarking up to 80.25 megabytes.
    –Test complete.–

    Congratulations, your web host allows you to use at least 80.25 megabytes of memory for each PHP process hosting your WordPress site.

    I’ve activated all required plugins and get the same result – when WF is also activated.

    There’s obviously an issue somewhere along the lines so it looks like WF is out for this project, unfortunately.
