We use WordPress for our Intranet site.
We use the NADI Plug-in and have it set to block anonymous access and we have Windows Authentication enabled.
with NADI we get to log in automatically when we hit the site.
What I have noticed is that CRON is not running, I ran a Site Health Check and these are 2 problems that relate to CRON that caught my attention.
The Rest API encountered an unexpected result
The REST API is one way WordPress, and other applications, communicate with the server. One example is the block editor screen, which relies on this to display, and save, your posts and pages.
The REST API call gave the following unexpected result: (401) <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <title>IIS 8.5 Detailed Error - 401.2 - Unauthorized</title>
Your site could not complete a loopback request
Loopback requests are used to run scheduled events, and are also used by the built-in editors for themes and plugins to verify code stability.
The loopback request returned an unexpected http status code, 401, it was not possible to determine if this will prevent features from working as expected.
I’ve tried googling this issue and none of the suggestions posted match my situation, even though I tried each of those suggestions and none of them have worked, and I think it’s because none of those people are blocking anonymous access and using Windows Authentication.
Any ideas on what I can do?
