In order to extend the functionality offered by XML-RPC servers without impacting on the protocol, reserved methods are supported in this release.

All methods starting with system. are considered reserved by the server. PHP for XML-RPC itself provides four special methods, detailed in this chapter.

Note that all server objects will automatically respond to clients querying these methods, unless the property allow_system_funcs has been set to false before calling the service() method. This might pose a security risk if the server is exposed to public access, e.g. on the internet.
