So great! Imagination and incredible! I have tried a number of measures, but I finally got this plugin found. 5 stars for this plugin. Many thanks.

Just works

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!

Something that works at last - thank you!

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.

Does just what it says. Perfect plugin!

Hello everyone

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.

Does exactly what it says it does

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.


Simple yet useful

Good idea to protect the website from abusers ;)
