Core file load.php is causing WP timeout w/memory issues and timeout

Since 2 days now one of my Managed WP site is going through difficult times. After surfing a bit (I spent more than 3 h w/different help desk from GD without being able to understand this issue..) I found what's going on.


1. We are not able to edit Core files and the error ir at load.php file as Wordfence explains:

WordPress core file modified: wp-includes/load.php”.
Filename: wp-includes/load.php
File type: Core
Issue first detected: 8 hours 1 min ago.
Severity: Critical
Status New
This WordPress core file has been modified and differs from the original file distributed with this version of WordPress

2. There are 2 threads at about this issue that needs URGENT attention from GoDaddy:

3. As a customer since 2003 I'm quite dissappointed my site was taken down 2/3 days ago claiming I had done something that was consuming the server resources when the issue was caused by a Core file I can't have access to.


I hope we can get GoDaddy make the

Hi Jesse,


I read your message and it seems related to my problem. I'm seeing the message below when I click on MailPoet in the WP dashboard. You had mentioned there was a patch, but I"m still seeing the error message. I wasn't sure what to do. The site is


Notice: Indirect modification of overloaded element of WP_Hook has no effect in /home/content/p3pnexwpnas06_data01/05/3182505/html/wp-content/object-cache.php on line 664


Thanks so much,
