If you get the following indexing error during the plugin installation you need to verify that your Application Passwords option is 'Enabled'.

Configure the plugin

To do this, in your Wordpress admin panel go to User > Profile and scroll down to Application Passwords. If it is 'Disabled', you will need to click on the button link to be redirected to the corresponding page that will allow you to enable the option.

In our example, we need to click on 'Edit Wordfence options'.

Configure the plugin

Once done, uncheck the box 'Disable Wordpress application passwords' and save. This way the Application Password option will be enabled.

Configure the plugin

If the issue persists, and you are still getting an indexing error message, please reset credentials by going to the Doofinder plugin, General Settings and clicking on the "Reset credentials" button at the bottom right.

Configure the plugin

Once done, go to your Doofinder Admin > Search Engines > Settings > Indices and click on the 'Process Now' button.

Configure the plugin


If in your plugin the REST authentication Password creation is blocked by this option: Disable Wordpress application passwords, you follow the instructions above or you can go straight to Wordfence> Firewall > All firewall options > Disable WordPress application passwords. Then, uncheck the box and save for us to have access.
