Using Wordfence with WP Rocket

Although WP Rocket is compatible with the Wordfence plugin, there are a few things that can cause trouble.

Live Traffic

This option can be useful in some cases, but it will slow down your website. Unfortunately, WP Rocket as well as any other caching plugin cannot control this, so we highly recommend not to use this functionality of WordFence.

If you are not sure where to find these options inside WordFence, check out this short video.

Wordfence Cache (prior to v6.2.1)

Prior to version 6.2.1, Wordfence had a Performance option (its own caching system, turned off by default). That feature has been removed from Wordfence as of version 6.2.1, however, if for some reason you still run Wordfence in an earlier version, you should make sure the Performance option is deactivated.
