All In One WP Security & Firewall
Enabling Pingback Protection prevents iOS app login (2 posts)

    I installed the All in One Security and Firewall plugin on my self-hosted WordPress blog site. Setup was easy, but I ran into one snag - enabling the Pingback Protection will prevent the WordPress iOS app from logging in. It kept saying there was a problem with my WordPress setup. After a quick Google search, I saw some references to the XMLRPC file either being missing or locked, which would prevent the iOS app from working. Sure enough, as soon as I disabled the Pingback Protection, the app now works again.

    There may not be a way to protect the file and still allow the app to work, but maybe a warning in the plugin to let people know that the two are related?

    Thanks for a great app!

    Thanks for the info Glenn.
    We will add a warning/info in the "Pingback Protection" section regarding the iOS app.
