Update old security keys function doesn't work on Defender

Not able to solve the security tweak "Update old security keys". After click on " Regenerate Security Keys", the plugin asks to login, but the security tweaks are still unresolved.

    Hello Kronikon Design & Development

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    I have checked your site and the good news is that the functions itself is working fine: the keys are updated. I have compared the keys in wp-config.php file before and after trying to apply the tweak - they file update date reflects it and the keys are different. So, that part is fine.

    The part that's affected, though, is the fact that Defender doesn't seem to "detect" this. Can you tell me, please, if there's any kind of additional cache on the server? I'm thinking about tools like Varnish, Redis, memcached and similar. If so, would you be able to clear them up or even temporarily disable?

    Looking forward to your response,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
