Rank Math creating multiple 404's looking for qrz.xss.ht

  • Hello,

    As I’m in the 404 monitor logs, and Rank Math is creating multiple 404’s looking for the file called qrz.xss.ht. I clear them from the log and they continue to reappear. Could this be a bug, or a configuration error?

  • There’s another 404 that may be related as it’s also referencing that same. ht file.

    Possibly related 404 to initial screenshot

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    I am afraid that I cannot reproduce this issue on my end which means that this could either be as a result of a configuration issue or a conflict.

    It appears fine now as the 404’s are no longer happening. Must have been something between our site setup and v1.0.23. When I saw the update to today I installed it and the the issue ceased.

    Thanks for your help. Have a great day.
