Fix WordPress Missed Schedule

scheduleIf you have a WordPress installation that has issues with scheduled posts or certain plugins that rely on wp-cron, then this article is for you. There are two ways I have found that will pretty much fix your situation whether your site is self hosted or you are hosting your site using a paid solution such as GoDaddy. Below I will provide the fix for both situations.

Self Hosted Solution:

The way that I resolved the issues on my home server running LEMP, was to link my internal server IP address with my domain name in /etc/hosts as seen below:  localhost

Paid Hosted Solution:

Now, open your hosting manager and Navigate to Cron Jobs/Cron Job Manager. Click on Create Cron Job and select Run Every 5 Minutes.Enter the following command in the Command section:

wget -O /dev/null
