#47957 new enhancement

Don't verify SSL certificate for loopback test

If a site uses a self-signed certificate the loopback test will report an error. Since spawn_cron() doesn't verify the certificate the test shouldn't either to replicate core's behaviour.

Hmm, we definitely need a more reliable solution overall. The reason the Site Health check does it this way is because it was copied from how the plugin/theme editors do them (this was the basis for creating the test, as a lot of users had issues saving after the changes to t hem were implemented, all due to loopback failures).

There's now 3 places (likely to be more) that do loopbacks, so having a fixed loopback function is probably a more sustainable approach?

I'm thinking along the lines of function loopback( $target_url ) { return $WP_Http } which all the places that do loopbacks can use, and by returning the WP_Http object those places can then check whatever they need, if that is the content body, headers etc.

This would also be handy for #47954 which looks to do loopback calls to verify URLs are reachable before breaking a users access to their site.
