My droplet keeps running out of memory instantly after restarting mysql. I can no longer access my WordPress site at all, I was previously seeing the Error establishing connection to database screen.
I saw the following in the access logs: grep xmlrpc /var/log/apache2/access.log 184.108.40.206 - - [15/Mar/2022:07:30:23 +0000] “GET /xmlrpcs.php?daksldlkdsadas=1 HTTP/1.1” 404 24956 “www.bing.com” “wp_is_mobile” 220.127.116.11 - - [15/Mar/2022:14:26:04 +0000] “POST /xmlrpc.php HTTP/1.1” 301 5773 “https://insidesurvivor.com/xmlrpc.php” “The Incutio XML-RPC PHP Library – WordPress/5.4.10”
I updated the config to block xmlrpc traffic but that hasn’t solved anything. If anyone has any suggestions that would be appreciated because I’ve hit a wall!
