– disable “Anti Spam” option in HMWP General settings tab
– disable “Directory List” option in General settings tab
– disable “Hide PHP Files” option in General settings tab
– empty out “Ajax URL” field in Permalinks & URLs tab
– if still the issue then try disabling “IDS” option in IDS Firewall tab
I tried deactivating HMWP plugin, but the scan is still not working. Please check. To get previous HMWP settings back, activate the plugin, go to it’s settings page and click on “undo previous settings” button in start tab.
