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
--version arguments according to the values from the
Dashboard->Updates menu in the admin area of the site.
- Verify checksums against a specific version of WordPress.
- Verify checksums against a specific locale of WordPress.
- Retry downloads without certificate validation if TLS handshake fails. Note: This makes the request vulnerable to a MITM attack.
