Running latest update of WordPress
Have installed latest version of Jetpack
Have attempted disabling my security plugins.
xmlrpc.php present and accounted for in root directory of site where it has always been.
I had contacted my host who had stated that they had temporarily blocked XML-RPC due to an influx of DDOS and other hack efforts directed at that service with no ETR.
When asking for an ETR I was told that there was a new update that allowed me to control my PHP version and services. i’ve tried PHP 5.4 – 5.6 (think I’ve got it on 5.5 at the moment) and there’s a field to enable XML-RPC.
Still getting a 404.
It has been suggested by my hosting tech support that this is a coding error in WordPress or Jetpack and I should create this thread in order to pinpoint the issue.
Jetpack is not the only service impacted by the XML-RPC 404 so I seriously doubt the issue is within that plugin. i, for example, cannot access my blog via the WordPress mobile app, nor use any online services that interact with the site via the XML-RPC.
As my understanding of the causes of a 404 error in this situation are all server-side with the hosting firewall options I’ll admit to being at a loss what information would be helpful in this matter, but please just ask for it and I’ll happily supply because I’m rather tired of not having full function on my blog.
