Description

Hi,

there was already a ticket open for this request: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19928

but unfortunately this doesn´t work anymore:

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently Server: nginx Date: Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:23:23 GMT Content-Type: text/html Content-Length: 178 Connection: keep-alive Location: https://wordpress.org/latest.zip

Any chance to have the md5 sum back in the header? Thank you

Replying to mechanix:

Hi @mechanix! Thanks for taking the time to open an issue here on Trac!

The header is indeed there. I don't know exactly when, but the wordpress.org domain has switched over to HTTPS since that original ticket was filed. The Content-MD5 is indeed there in the HTTPS version. Note what happens when you allow curl to follow the redirect below:

curl -IL 'http://wordpress.org/latest.zip'
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Server: nginx
Date: Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:35:59 GMT
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 178
Connection: keep-alive
Location: https://wordpress.org/latest.zip

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx
Date: Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:35:59 GMT
Content-Type: application/zip
Content-Length: 8901913

Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=wordpress-4.8.zip

You can use the HTTPS version directly to skip the redirect.
