I got this error when I check the Wordpress site health section. How can I fix this? I search this error on internet and its look like a hosting related problem. Can Godaddy fix this?
The error is " cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received"
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hello cetin, I hope you are well. cURL error 28 problem is a very common server related issue. In most of the cases not created by a particular theme or plugin, nor by WordPress.
How to fix it ?
You can also install the Query Monitor plugin and check the status of the HTTP API Calls in the admin page where the error is displayed.
This is not a solution, just some suggestions. Don't have a big SOLVED green checkmark unless someone actually described a solution that worked for them please.
In my case: GoDaddy suggested I pay for security support to fix this and I'm trying to figure it out myself.
In my case the fix was to disable ALL plugins, then the Health Check passed, so I enabled them one by one and found that there was code in an old quiz plugin that was causing both of my errors: "The REST API encountered an error" and later loading was "Your site could not complete a loopback request".
The culprit was the plug-in Chained Quiz, even the most recent version of which ( Version 22.214.171.124 ) caused the errors in the Health Check. I notified the developer of this WordPress plug-in of the problem and will just not use it for now.
Solved? Not yet, but a lot closer. The tips above (which I also found elsewhere) caused me a day of trying to track this down when really just disabling all plugins and checking them one by one would have done it in 15 or 20 minutes. I hope this helps someone!
