This plugin helped me log-in through the Wordpress Android app after it was giving me XML-RPC error. After installing, I changed the xmlrpc file in file manager by simply adding "2". Thank you, Developer. You may want to update this plugin too.

Yesterday my server provider migrated servers using now cPanel 100.0.11 Apache 2.4.52 and PHP 7.4. Now Windows Live Writer can't upload a post anymore. I disabled ModSecurity in cPanel and same problem. Then installed this Rename Xmlrpc and same thing. This plugin does nothing. I'm stuck.

Thanks a lot for this! Rename your xmlrpc file to xmlrpc2 if you dont understand how to edit the plugin. Works with WordPress 5.3.2!
