Regarding the email, HMWP IDS detects malicious requests coming to your site and notify you about it. But all these requests might not be harmful and you need not worry as HMWP IDS will take care of this and will block the malicious requests if Impact level is more than 20 (default value specified in HMWP IDS). You can stop receiving emails regarding this by setting “Notification Threshold” option to 0 in IDS Firewall tab.
Note: If in case, valid request is also listed as intrusion then hover over that request name and click on Exclude link to add it to exception list.
Hi, can you please check if there’s .htaccess file in your site’s root folder? If not, then please create it and add default WP rules in it – https://codex.wordpress.org/htaccess and give it write access. Let us know.
Is htaccess file empty? When you apply “medium privacy” settings in HMWP, whether the rules get auto added to htaccess file? If not, then you’ll need to manually add HMWP rules in htaccess file. For this, you’ll need to click on “manual configuration” button in General settings tab and follow the instructions there.
