I didn't see anything in documentation, but it seems as if there's some kind of throttle in place that I can't find configuration for.

When running an operation with Better Search Replace (https://wordpress.org/plugins/better-search-replace/) the task fails. Checking error logs, I get these notices about "limiting requests":

2019/07/03 16:43:30 [error] 896#896: *1405 limiting requests, excess: 6.324 by zone "wp", client:, server: domain.com, request: "POST /wp-admin/tools.php?page=better-search-replace&bsr-ajax=process_search_replace HTTP/1.1", host: "domain.com", referrer: "http://domain.com/wp-admin/tools.php?page=better-search-replace"

Is there something in NGINX config that causes the error and can we modify it in some way?

Hi Denny,

Yes, Webinoly have an extra layer of security to mitigate WP attacks, in this case the wp-admin folder is protected limiting the amount of request per second.

Please, read this post: https://webinoly.com/support/437/403-forbidden-in-wordpress-admin-login-page?show=903#c903

Seems like "Delicious Brain" plugins always fails due an abuse of the admin section core files. They know about these issues and they say people should disable this security features. Seriously, do you think this is a good advice?


Be careful about the plugins you choose.

Thanks so much, appreciate the info, and I'm extremely pleased to see that enhancements like this are being so well thought out on your end. I've always used that plugin out of convenience and the interface, but I can just use wpcli instead - or see if there are any plugins that don't seem to abuse the ajax requests.
