[resolved] what if I rename xmlrpc.php? (6 posts)

    For some reason my host doesn't allow xmlrpc calls; what I mean is, I can post using a client of some sort, but I have to rename xmlrpc.php to something else ... apparently they had a lot of spam problems or something. Anyway, my question is simply if any other files within the WP installation (2.04) call for xmlrpc.php, so I can go in and change them to use the appropriate filename - does anyone know offhand? I've gone through some of them and searched, but I want to double check.

    One thing you can try (totally depends on your hosts setup) is adding something like the following to your .htaccess:

    <Files xmlrpc.php>
    SecFilterInheritance Off
    </Files>

    Absolutely! - Sorry, I didn't realize I could do that now with stuff in the forums ... anyway, doing it now. Thanks again!
