Advanced Automatic Updates
Does not work on windows server (10 posts)

    I have a two window 2008 servers at which this plugin does not make any updates, but on my linux server it works fine. Is there a certain file I can schedule to run in windows so it updates?

    It runs in wp-cron, so shouldn't need any extra interaction to do the updates.

    I don't have a Windows server handy to investigate, I'll see if I can set one up.

    Where is the wp-cron file located?

    In the main WordPress directory, wp-cron.php.

    I can schedule windows to automatically execute that wp-cron.php file. Do you think that is all that is needed?

    It's worth a shot, though WordPress should automatically run it occasionally - let me know how it goes.

    That idea didn't work. I have one plugin update available and it did not updates it after running the wp-cron.php file.

    Sorry, I haven't managed to sort out some time to check this out - could you check the error logs to see if there's anything relevant showing up?

    Try: "http://example.com/wp_cron.php?doing_wp_cron"

    The '?doing_wp_cron' part is important.

    Best wishes

    Did you have any luck figuring out what was preventing the updates?
