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?
