Support » Plugin: Disable XML-RPC » Solved Login Attempts

  • nickpower1


    After installing Limit Log In Attempts & Stealth Login, I was inundated with emails of blocked attempts & lockouts. This had been going on for years & i couldn’t stop these hackers/bots etc from trying to get into my site. I then installed a plugin called WPS Hide Login which changes your login URL but that still didn’t make a difference for some reason.
    I just went along for years deleting these emails until my hosting service provider contacted me to say that these visits & constant attempts were using up a lot of something (that i don’t understand…data…bandwith???) & that they were going to shut down my account.
    After an online search i found out about Disable XML-RPC & thought i would try it.
    It’s worked a treat & 100%. Whatever XML & RPC is i’ve obviously not needed it on my webpage so all is great. I’ve not had a single attempt that i’ve been notified of for 3 weeks now since installing the plugin so i’m more than happy. Thanks for this 5 star plugin.
