    xmlrpc.php script is quite commonly installed with many free blogging. Unfortunately, it is quite easy to exploit and often abused by amateur ‘hackers’ and spamming groups for malicious purposes.

    A number of plugins still use xmlrpc.php and the solution is normally to rename the xmlrpc.php file to another file name. However Jetpack requires the file to always be called xmlrpc.php and these changes won’t work.

    Is there anything can be done?



    Staff have requested that folks with Jetpack issues post their questions to the existing Jetpack forum at, since it would be easier to keep support focused in one place as much as possible:
