How to Skip Rank Math Registration for Development Purposes

In this knowledgebase article, we’ll show you how to skip the registration requirement when testing Rank Math in WPLoader.

Note: This tutorial is intended for developers who are familiar with building WordPress products.

If you build extensions for Rank Math, you might run into instances where the WPLoader test fails. This happens because the Rank Math plugin is not connected to an account. 

As a developer, you can resolve this issue by copying this code and pasting it into the wp-config.php file using cPanel/FTP.


How to Insert the Code in Your wp-config.php File

Note: The wp-config.php file contains sensitive information that may stop your website from working. So we recommend you create a backup before editing it. 

You would insert the code in your wp-config.php file using a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client or cPanel.

1 Open cPanel and Select File Manager

Head over to the cPanel of your site and select File Manager.

Select File Manager in FTP Client

2 Open the wp-config.php File

In the File Manager, navigate to public_html → wp-config.php. Right-click this PHP file and select Edit.

Open the wp-config.php file

3 Add the Code and Save Your Changes

Add the code before the line that says, “That’s all, stop editing! Happy publishing”. Then save your changes.

Add the code to wp-config.php file


The good part is that this works for adding any code to your wp-config.php file. As we mentioned, you should create a backup whenever you want to add or delete code from your wp-config.php file. The file contains information about your database. Adding or deleting the wrong code here could lock you out of your WordPress site.
