    Hi Rod

    Hope you are doing good today.

    This issue could be a plugin conflict. Would you please run a conflict test? Please deactivate all plugins except Defender and check if the problem gone. If so, then enable all plugins one by one and find which one is having conflict. If there is no positive result, switch to default WordPress theme like 2017 and see if it works.

    Also this could be related to low server resources like:
    max_execution_time and memory_limit.

    Can you check with your host what are those values and increase them?
    I recommend:
    memory_limit 215M
    and
    max_execution_time 300.

    You can also follow our blog article here to increase them via ftp by editing wp-config.php and php.ini files:

    Kind Regards,
