    I have tried to find help for this plugin to rename the xmlrpc file but I don't understand the instructions I have downloaded the plugin but I don't know where I should be making the changes where is the endpoint . Is the change just made with the file I have downloaded within the plugin. I need to do this because I am with namesco and they block use of the xmlrpc file they recommend renaming.

    This worked fine for me.

    What I did was:

    1. Download and unzip the plugin
    2. Rename my existing xmlrpc.php file to "workaround.php"
    3. Open the rename-xml-rpc.php file
    4. In line 14 of the file (where it says "//CHANGE THIS poiting to the renamed file"), change "xmlrpc2.php" to "workaround.php"
    5. Upload the plugin
    6. Activate the plugin in WordPress

    You can use any file name instead of "workaround.php"
