wp host-check --path=<path>

Loads the WordPress installation to verify that it's still hosted on this server.

First, it verifies the WordPress installation loads. Next, it makes a HTTP request to determine: 1) whether the installation is still on the server, and 2) whether the installation loads as expected.

Potential statuses include:

  • no-wp-exists - WordPress doesn't exist at the path.
  • no-wp-config - No wp-config.php file was found for the installation.
  • error-db-connect - Couldn't connect to the database using defined credentials.
  • error-db-select - Connected to the database but couldn't select specific database.
  • missing-<http-code> - WordPress installation isn't on the server.
  • hosted-maintenance - WordPress installation is hosted but renders maintenance page.
  • hosted-php-fatal - WordPress installation is hosted but has a PHP fatal.
  • hosted-broken-wp-login - WordPress installation is hosted but the login page is broken.
  • hosted-valid-login - WordPress installation is hosted on server and login page loads.

Disables WP cron to prevent 'wp_version_check' from being run.
