windows – What am I doing wrong to receive Loopback and REST API WordPress Errors?

I’ve taken a dive into self hosting and learning along the way. I have a decent understanding of most of it. It only took me a day to cobble together a “working” NGINX, MySQL, PHP, phpMyAdmin and SSL. I am doing this purely for the educational purposes and fun. A playground if you will. Version information is here. SSL acquired by LetsEncrypt via certbot. The host is Windows Server 2016 Standard 10.0.14393 x64.

I’ve currently ran into a few problems.

  • WordPress Error: The REST API request failed due to an error: cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10010 milliseconds with 0 bytes received (http_request_failed)
  • WordPress Error: The loopback request to your site failed, this means features relying on them are not currently working as expected: cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10008 milliseconds with 0 bytes received (http_request_failed)

I have looked through some logs and can’t make heads or tails of it. I have spent a solid day trying random things I have come across. Because WordPress has zero plugins enabled or installed, and only one theme installed and used (default 2020), I am led to believe this is an issue with the server configuration. For reference, here are both the files used by NGINX:

WordPress appears to function fine. But I prefer no errors. I’m not sure where the breakdown is for this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
