Bulk Smush not Working (Loopback Requests)


When I do a bulk Smush, I get this error:

Your site seems to have an issue with loopback requests. Please try again and if the problem persists find out more here.

I tried it again and it still doesn’t work. When I click on the link, it just went to a documentation page with no tutorials on troubleshooting.

I also tried deactivating all my plugins and it still doesn’t work

BTW, I am using a VPS with nginx on Ubuntu 22.04.
