What Is Xmlrpc.php in WordPress and Why You Should Disable It
Simply navigate to the Plugins › Add New section from within your WordPress dashboard. Search for Disable XML-RPC and install the plugin .
If you’d want to only turn certain elements of XML-RPC off, but still allow certain plugins and features to work, then use the following plugins instead:
- Stop XML-RPC Attack. This plugin will stop all XML-RPC attacks, but it’ll continue to allow plugins like Jetpack, and other automatic tools and plugins to retain access to the xmlrpc.php file.
- Control XML-RPC Publishing. This allows you to retain control and use over the remote publishing option afforded by xmlrpc.php.

- 16 ounces of sour cream (or substitute plain Greek yogurt)
- 3 or 4 cloves of minced or grated garlic (the more garlic – the hotter the tzatziki sauce)
- 1/2 cucumber grated and thinned (drain and discard the juice from the cucumber)
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of finely ground white pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt (or more to your taste)
Combine ingredients and stir to blend.
Use to top gyros, or to top pork or chicken souvlaki.
