Your site appears to be blocking our WP Checkup bot.


I keep getting errors from full site backups and now I am also getting issues with the SEO plugin.

Keep getting this
"Your site appears to be blocking our WP Checkup bot. Please check your firewall settings and that your site is publicly accessible on the Internet"

I have tried to fix this myself but with no joy, can someone please help me to fix this and get my backups works etc.
