#53024 new enhancement

List https functionality health check failures as critical

Severity: normal Version: 5.7

In #52783 site health check https failures were reduced to warnings pending some documentation improvements due to false negatives increasing the load on hosting companies' tech support teams.

This follow up ticket is to return the warning level to critical with the following considerations:

  • Fine tune when failures should report warnings or critical errors
  • Improve documentation on WordPress.org to avoid overburdening hosting support teams
  • Link to WordPress.org documentation as a primary call to action rather than contacting the user's host.

  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Milestone changed from 5.8 to 5.9

This one still needs a patch. With feature freeze for 5.8 today, it looks like it will need a bit more time.

Pinging @Clorith to make sure this one is on his radar as a maintainer.

Radar is fired up, this is awaiting dotorg documentation updates still I believe, I've added the keyword for that.
