I changed my wp-admin URL, but i am keep getting reports of "User login fail." in Audit logging. There is any way to know what URL was used to login?

    Hi Talal ,

    Could you try disabling XML-RPC on your WordPress site for a while and see if this fixes this?

    There are several ways you can disable it:

    1. adding the following in a mu-plugin:
    add_filter('xmlrpc_enabled', '__return_false');
    If you are not familiar with mu-plugins you can read more about them here:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-manual-2/using-mu-plugins/

    2. adding the following in you htaccess file:

    <Files xmlrpc.php>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    </Files>

    3. Renaming the file
    xmlrpc.php to xmlrpc.php.txt
    That file is in the main folder of your WordPress installation.

    Please let us know if you still have this issue after disabling XML-RPC.

    Thanks!
