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.

EXAMPLES

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