Remove XML-RPC Methods

Descrição

The plugin removes all methods from the WordPress XML-RPC API. It is an alternative to just using the xmlrpc_enabled hook, because that is only used “To disable XML-RPC methods that require authentication”.

Activating this plugin will disable pingbacks and trackbacks, because these rely on XML-RPC.

Testing the plugin

From the command line you can test if the plugin is working correctly using cURL:

curl -d '<?xml version="1.0"?><methodCall><methodName>system.listMethods</methodName><params><param><value><string/></value></param></params></methodCall>' https://<your domain>/xmlrpc.php

This should only return system methods.

If the request returns methods starting with wp. the plugin is not active.

Instalação

  1. Download the plugin and unzip it. Copy the files to the /wp-content/plugins/wee-remove-xmlrpc-methods directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
