wp core verify-checksums

Verifies WordPress files against WordPress.org's checksums.

Downloads md5 checksums for the current version from WordPress.org, and compares those checksums against the currently installed files.

For security, avoids loading WordPress when verifying checksums.

If you experience issues verifying from this command, ensure you are
passing the relevant --locale and --version arguments according to
the values from the Dashboard->Updates menu in the admin area of the
site.

OPTIONS OPTIONS

[--version=<version>]
Verify checksums against a specific version of WordPress.
[--locale=<locale>]
Verify checksums against a specific locale of WordPress.
