I've been chasing around all morning to find out why my site was running like a dog. Looking into APC vs opcache and php-fpm options etc
Finally thought to look in the logs and saw constant xml-rpc post entries.
Installed this plugin and enabled it, and the site was instantly fixed.
Highly recommended, and enough to make me register and review!
After days of off and on brute force attempts on two of my clients sites, this plugin stopped them dead as soon as I activated it.
I have needed this plugin many times in the past, so glad I have installed it now. I will add it to all my client sites from now on.
Thank you developers.
Works great and this should be on the favorites list of every developer.
Works seamlessly. I am on 4.2.4.
Good work mate.
I registered to review this plugin which helped me so much minutes ago.
My server started warning of a high load. I used putty to read htop command and monitor server activity. There where several xml rpc calls.
I had a plugin to stop this in advance, but didn't work actually!
So I decided to try another one and found this plugin.
After installing this plugin my server load started to come down.
All xml rpc calls stopped and I am so thankful. I will use it on all my wordpress sites.
Thanks and good luck
Since it concerns security, I can only say great.
Nice little plugin gives you simple control of XML-RPC when the botnets come knocking at your door. They still come knocking but the response time is faster with XML-RPC disabled and so the botnet attack doesn't cripple your server's performance.
Good idea to protect the website from abusers ;)
It works pretty well, thank you!
