Here are the First Things to Try Before Contacting Support:
  1. First and foremost, back up your site before you do anything… Make sure you are on the latest version of WPSecurity as we regularly add features and fix issues. You can download the latest version from the email we sent.
  2. Deactivate all other plugins except WPSecurity . If the problem is resolved, then reactivate the other plugins one-by-one to see which plugin is causing the conflict.
What Are the Requirements for This WordPress Plugin?

Can I Use This on My Client’s Sites?

No, this is for personal use only for sites you own. If you would like to use this on client’s sites, they will require their own license.

Can This Run on WordPress.com or Other Sites?

This is a WordPress plugin for self-hosted WordPress sites only. Sites that use WordPress Multi-User like WordPress.com do not allow you to install your own plugins. However, if you do run your OWN WordPress site, our plugin is FULLY COMPATIBLE.

I Got a error of ‘The uploaded file  exceeds the upload_max_filesize…’ When Installing

This means your host may be limiting uploads to certain sizes. No problem, just unzip the plugin file and upload via FTP to your wp-content/plugins folder. We cover this in the installation video if you have never used FTP. You can also do it through your hosts control panel as most of them have a file manager too.
