    Loopback requests taking too long with no plugins installed at all, by 247pinger

    I have no plugins enabled at all except for Health Check which reports the following three errors:

    1. You are not using HTTPS to access this website.
    2. A scheduled event (wp_version_check) has failed to run. Your site still works, but this may indicate that scheduling posts or automated updates may not work as intended.
    3. The loopback request to your site took too long to complete, this may prevent WP_Cron from working, along with theme and plugin editors.

    And when I try to edit a php file specifically through the wordpress editor, I am told:


    Unable to communicate back with site to check for fatal errors, so the PHP change was reverted. You will need to upload your PHP file change by some other means, such as by using SFTP.

    So there must be a problem in my theme I am guessing?

    Which should be easy enough to track down since I have written it from scratch myself using a generic version downloaded from underscores.me

    I just have no clue where to even start looking.

    What is a “loopback request” exactly? How long is it actually taking? And what can I do to make the connection or speed it up or whatever?

    I am totally lost right now.

    EDIT: Just to be clear, I can edit .css files on my current theme. And I can edit any file on another theme that is not currently active. I just cannot edit php files on my currently active theme… which makes me think it’s related to this loopback request stuff.
