Check the 'order' order. I do it this way:
# Block WordPress xmlrpc.php requests <Files xmlrpc.php> order deny,allow deny from all # allow from xx.xx.xx.xx #add allowed IP addresses </Files>
And, to ensure it's blocked, I add this to the functions.php file.
Actually, I put the above command and others into a private plugin, so I don't have to worry about Child Themes, or theme changes.
(Side note: I had a WP site compromised via an xmlrpc attack.)
