Disable XML-RPC Pingback

ਵੇਰਵਾ

Stops abuse of your site’s XML-RPC by simply removing some methods used by attackers. While you can use the rest of XML-RPC methods.

This is more friendly than disabling totally XML-RPC, that it’s needed by some plugins and apps (I.e. Mobile apps or some Jetpack’s modules).

  • The original one.
  • Simple and effective.
  • No marketing buzz.
  • Maintained and updated when needed since 2014.
  • 100% compliant with WordPress coding standards which makes it fail safe.
  • 70,000+ active installations can’t be wrong.

If you’re happy with the plugin please don’t forget to give it a good rating, it will motivate me to keep sharing and improving this plugin (and others).

ਵਿਸ਼ੇਸ਼ਤਾਵਾਂ

Removes the following methods from XML-RPC interface.

  • pingback.ping
  • pingback.extensions.getPingbacks
  • X-Pingback from HTTP headers. This will hopefully stops some bots from trying to hit your xmlrpc.php file.

Requirements

  • WordPress 3.8.1 or higher.

ਸਥਾਪਤੀਕਰਨ

  • Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation (or install it directly from your dashboard) and then activate the plugin from Plugins page.
  • There’s not options page, simply install and activate.

This broke my site, I had to revert to a backup on the server after installing it.

I'm confused here... I see this plugin I've never heard of and I never installed... and the bad thing is; I can't remove it! If this is a security plugin it sure doesn't behave like it! It's behaviour is a no-go for me. Update: My hosting provider admittd they have installed this plugin. But they never notified me. So now I'm giving a 5 star rating.
