    Yes, you can delete the disable-xml-rpc folder under /wp-content/plugins/.

    I’m curious what other plugins you are using, so I can see if I can reproduce the issue. This plugin is extremely simple and just calls one built-in filter to turn off the XML-RPC functionality, so I wouldn’t expect this. But I’m happy to do more testing with the other plugins you have to see if there’s an incompatibility.

    Thanks, I will try.

    I use this plugin:

    I can login again. I run some tests, it seems to conflict with my Wpml plugin.

    Thanks for the update. That’s certainly unexpected. I don’t have a subscription to WPML, but I will do some digging to see why this might be the case.

    Just to clarify, when WPML and Disable XML-RPC are both enabled, you are no longer able to get to your login page? Even with WPS Hide Login disabled?

    correct, I even deleted WPS hide login and still couldn’t log in. after deleting some parts from WPML I could login again.

    I will try to find out which extension from WPML causes this and come back to you. It will takes some time, since my time is very limited the next couple of weeks.

    Thanks for confirming.

    When you get a chance, could you provide a list of WPML extensions you have installed?

    Another thing that might be good to test is putting the following line into your functions.php file – this is really the only work that the plugin does. This SHOULD be what’s conflicting, but I’d like to confirm, if you’re able:

    add_filter( 'xmlrpc_enabled', '__return_false' );

    Take your time and thanks for the troubleshooting and info you’ve provided!

    I got an update from WPML and installed your plugin again. It seems to work all fine now.

    Great plugin! I don’t receive any password guessing emails anymore.
