I simply renamed the physical file "xmlrpc2.php" (as the default name use in the script) and everything wen't fine. Thanks a lot!
Yesterday my server provider migrated servers using now cPanel 100.0.11 Apache 2.4.52 and PHP 7.4. Now Windows Live Writer can't upload a post anymore. I disabled ModSecurity in cPanel and same problem. Then installed this Rename Xmlrpc and same thing. This plugin does nothing. I'm stuck.
Testet with WP Version: 5.7
But the Install instructions are wrong.
The File must be renamed to 'xmlrpc2.php'. Or you need to edit the plugin code.
It's simple. And it WORKS! This is how EVERY plugin should be. Well done!
Thanks a lot for this!
Rename your xmlrpc file to xmlrpc2 if you dont understand how to edit the plugin.
Works with WordPress 5.3.2!
I am having issues with the rename xmlrpc plugin.
Was able to get it to work but when I log in from my app, it doesn't refresh and was also unable to make a post.
Anyway round this? Or is it from my own end?
