  • I have new installation on private/local server, no plugins other than “Health Check”

    The loopback request returned an unexpected status code, 463, this may affect tools such as WP_Cron, or theme and plugin editors.

    What is “loopback request” in terms of “Health Check” plugin?

    resolved: hostnames

    It means your website cannot make requests to itself. Sometimes hosts will disable this ability or might not be able to do it due to the way their servers are set up. You’ll need to talk to them.

    @ddur can you elaborate please on what the issue was? Thanks.



    I do not remember anymore, something with my hosts file on private network server.
