Known plugin conflicts

Plugin: Advanced noCaptcha & invisible Captcha (v2 & v3)

https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-nocaptcha-recaptcha/

Description: Causes our two-factor authentication feature to malfunction.

Plugin: Case Insensitive URL’s

https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/case-insensitive-urls/

Description: Causes Wordfence admin pages to malfunction.

Plugin: Comet Cache

https://wordpress.org/plugins/comet-cache/

Description: It was reported to us that this plugin’s “pre-cache” feature can trigger Wordfence bot “Rate Limiting” rules and block the creation of cache files.

Fix: Adjust Wordfence bot “Rate Limiting” rules. You could also add your server IP address to the Wordfence IP address allowlist. Adding your server IP address to the Wordfence IP address allowlist on a shared server is not recommended as it allows other sites on that server to potentially attack your site and bypass all Wordfence protection.

Note: This can potentially apply to other caching plugins that have a feature that rebuilds cache files automatically.
