[resolved] Login with Cron Job (2 posts)

    I have a bit of an odd situation. I am setting up a private blog which only allows registered members in. However, I most also setup an email post system. This requires that a cron job be setup to run the wp-mail.php to check the pop3 account.

    Well as you can guess, the cron job can't get in, if WP requires a password.

    Is there a way to have my cron job enter the user name and password and then run the wp-mail.php file?

    Here is my current cron job, standard stuff:

    wget -N http://www.vanguard.artfulalibi.com/wp-mail.php

    I finally found a solution. I simply switched from Register Only plugin to Angsuman’s Authenticated WordPress Plugin

    Angsuman's plug allows for the running of wp-mail.php
