[:error] [pid 1476] [client] script '/var/www/html/xmlrpc.php' not found or unable to stat

Ubuntu PHP

I created Virtual Hosts on Ubuntu 14.04 for my multiple websites and after I set up all the necessary files in “public_html” folder some websites aren’t loading.
So I checked the error.log and it shows this:

[Fri Oct 10 21:36:35.081248 2014] [:error] [pid 1476] [client] script ’/var/www/html/xmlrpc.php’ not found or unable to stat

I installed php5-xmlrpc already and still website is not loading and that error appears.

I googled many times but there is no specific answer to this particular problem and can anybody help me here?

  • When you say “some websites aren’t loading”, do you mean that you’re unable to access the WordPress admin panel for those sites?

That’s fine, these are probably bots trying to exploit your site via the xmlrpc file. If you’re not experiencing any issues with the XML-RPC functionality, you can safely ignore the errors.
