    Did you try with 19.1?

    Yes, same issue occurs

    I am getting this issue as well. When Yoast plugin is enabled, the REST API returns a 500 error, and when I look in PHP logs it is exhausting the memory. This only happens when the plugin is on.

    Having this issue on my site as well, I get a 500 return code when Yoast is switched on. There seems to be a memleak somewhere, when the plugin is switched off everything works fine.

    Hello everyone,

    Thanks for reaching out, and I am very sorry it took a while to respond to this. We tested this on sites that run free or free/premium, and none of them has the issue. So, it’s likely specific to the setup – content, theme, server restrictions etc.

    Kindly navigate to WordPress admin > Tools > Site Health > Info (tab) and click ‘Copy site info to clipboard’. Save to a text file and share via a link like pastebin.com.Taking a look at what your sites have in common could help determine a possible cause so we can reproduce it.

    So you’re saying the solution is to not use Yoast SEO and to use another SEO plugin? Thanks!!!

    I am also seeing this issue. When I deactivate all other plugin but yoast, the Critical Error is there but when I deactivate Yoast, the problem goes away. My hosting is also with WPEngine. This is one of the messages on the Site Health screen:
    REST API Response: (http_request_failed) cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received
