Have this working anybody?
The .user.ini file is givenipermission so it cannot be deleted or renamed
Regarding repairing permissions not working, let me check
Very known plugin Duplicator can't migrate sites when can't insert a lime there for Wordfence.
Wordfence uses 4 million users and can't access this file too :/
Please Try to execute chattr -i .user.ini and try again.
chattr -i .user.ini
