Using

This package implements the following commands:

wp cron

Tests, runs, and deletes WP-Cron events; manages WP-Cron schedules.

wp cron

EXAMPLES

# Test WP Cron spawning system
$ wp cron test
Success: WP-Cron spawning is working as expected.

wp cron test

Tests the WP Cron spawning system and reports back its status.

wp cron test 

This command tests the spawning system by performing the following steps:

  • Checks to see if the DISABLE_WP_CRON constant is set; errors if true because WP-Cron is disabled.
  • Checks to see if the ALTERNATE_WP_CRON constant is set; warns if true.
  • Attempts to spawn WP-Cron over HTTP; warns if non 200 response code is returned.

# Cron test runs successfully.

Success: WP-Cron spawning is working as expected.
