Simply to disable Pingbacks/Trackbacks for a page or post in wordpress, you go to PhpMyadmin, go wp_posts table and search post_title for the page/post that you want to disable Pingbacks/Trackbacks, it will show specific page on the result.
After that, you update fields are comment_status and post_status with closed

If you want to disable Pingbacks/Trackbacks for all posts and pages in wordpress
Apply this SQL query
UPDATE wp_posts SET comment_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND post_type = 'post';
UPDATE wp_posts SET comment_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND post_type = 'page';
UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND post_type = 'page';
UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status='closed' WHERE post_status = 'publish' AND post_type = 'page';
For safety reason, remember to backup your database before doing this.

Hope it helps!
