Enabling access to XML-RPC

Public access to the XML-RPC file (xmlrpc.php) on our servers is blocked by default, because the file is a common target for hackers. More details are available in our Error "412 Precondition Failed" (mod_security2) article. You can now easily enable access to it by following these steps:

1. Open the Manage tab of the WordPress section.

2. Find the WordPress installation in the list, and click on the Edit (Edit) button for it. This will take you to the management page for the WordPress installation.

3. Scroll down to the Tools subsection, and locate the option called Enable access to XML-RPC.

Tools sub-section

4. Click on the Enable button next to it.

This is it - you can now successfully install any plugin that requires access to XML-RPC.
