#52977 new defect (bug)

Consider using basic auth in https healh check.

If the WordPress dashboard is behind basic auth, in some checks the site health component will pass the authentication through to background HTTP requests (the wp-cron tests does this for example).

The https detection test does not do this, it would be worth discussing whether it should:

  • always do this
  • send a second request with basic auth if the first request fails
  • something similar not listed here :)

Follow up to #52783.

I think it'd be worth always doing this.
