This plugin disables XML-RPC API in WordPress 3.5+, which is enabled by default.
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!
Very simple solution to deactivate XML-RPC. Thank you.
