Support » Fixing WordPress » what if I rename xmlrpc.php?

  • Resolved drobbins


    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

    WOW! You have no idea how long I have been dealing with workarounds for this – thank you so much! It worked like a charm!

    Welcome! Can you mark this resolved, then?

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

    I registered for only one thing. To say one big THANK YOU to Yosemite
    I tried all possible solutions that existed in every discussion regarding this problem and after few days of searching his post came as a blessing 🙂
