How to enable jetpack for wordpress?

Due to xml-rpc attack we have disabled xml-rpc from our server side. But some common wordpress plugin need this enable. (Example: Jetpack)

XML-RPC is a Problem

Something that bears mentioning here is the WordPress XML-RPC itself.

Unless you are using a plugin that requires using this now nearly ancient form of site access and control, XML-RPC is otherwise extra baggage that you need not carry around.

Given the utter lack of usage of XML-RPC throughout our client sites, the best fix for the current vulnerability, a great preventative measure against similar attack vectors, is to simply disable XML-RPC altogether.

Enable xml-rpc for your cPanel

To enable xml-rpc you can follow this instructions. Open .htaccess file from your cPanel and input the following code bottom of the file.

############################ Enable XML-RPC START #################################
<Files xmlrpc.php>
    Order Deny,Allow
    Allow from all
</Files>
############################ Enable XML-RPC END ###################################

N.B: If you couldn't find any .htaccess file in your cPanel. You have to create it into your public_html directory. Also remember if you enable xml-rpc it can be the reason of your website security. So we recommend do not enable this.
