Function: get_site_by_path

get_site_by_path( string $domain, string $path, integer | null $segments )

Retrieves the closest matching site object by its domain and path.

This will not necessarily return an exact match for a domain and path. Instead, it breaks the domain and path into pieces that are then used to match the closest possibility from a query.

The intent of this method is to match a site object during bootstrap for a requested site address
