    I just read Wordpress - WP Cron is not working | Centmin Mod Community

    Think I am experiencing the same issue. You mentioned you got it working with updraft plus? I tried installing it.

    Ran command
    Code:
    wget -O - -q -t 1 https://www.fondle.com.sg/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=1 > /dev/null 2>&1
    Too and it doesnt make updraft schedule the backup. I visites the wp-cron.php in my PC browser and it works tho. Perhaps setit is an issue with wget command?

    indeed...

    maybe install wp query monitor plugin and see what's going on or wp debug mode

    other possibility is cloudflare ECDSA ssl certs getting in the way via wget ? i.e. cloudflare blocking non-human requests ?

    I am suspecting this too actually - easyengine sets up curl cron instead of wget . maybe with curl can define the ecdsa ciphers.

    I will try and report back - problem is updraft free version only allows 4 hours scheduled backups haha.
