    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, 403, it was not possible to determine if this will prevent features from working as expected.

    I got this error in Wordfence. I see that it’s an HTTP error when the site is on HTTPS. How can I find where this error is so I can fix it?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi @amyhall

    I would like to have a look at your Wordfence diagnostics report. Please go to the top of the “Diagnostics” tab on the Wordfence “Tools” page. There will be a “SEND REPORT BY EMAIL” button to send the diagnostics report. Enter wftest [at] wordfence [dot] com as the email and amyhall as the forum username please.

    Once you have emailed me the diagnostics report can you reply here to let me know that it has been sent. This is important in the unlikely event that your installation of WordPress is having an issue with sending mail.

    Hi @amyhall

    If something was preventing WordPress from being able to send requests back to itself then that would be shown on the line Connecting back to this site in the Connectivity section on the Wordfence Tools >> Diagnostics page. It will also show the response body which can help indentify the cause of the problem.

    Currently there is no error there so you should also no longer be seeing the WordPress error Your site could not complete a loopback request.
