I have the plugin iThemes Security Pro installed on a couple of my websites. Recently, I've noticed that my Sucuri SiteCheck (both automated and not) scans are failing, but I have no idea why that is the case. The log is also ambiguous, telling me: Unable to properly scan your site. Timeout reached.

Below is the raw log the plugin gives me. Appreciate if anyone can tell me what the problem is. I don't have firewalls enabled, either on the plugin or on the Apache level, though I have ModSecurity enabled.

ModSecurity's logs don't give me any errors whenever I try a SiteCheck though, so it seems like the request is not even getting to Apache.

I found the problem. My PHP was updated and the max_execution_time setting was reset to 30 seconds, which wasn't enough for SiteCheck to completely scan the site. When I increased the execution time to somewhere above 120 seconds, the problem was fixed.
