    I have set up WangGuard and then set up a daily Cron Job. I now get over 200 emails every few hours. I have deleted the Cron Job and I am still getting the emails. What is going on?

    Hi wrowlands, I'm the main developer of WangGuard, how can we get in touch with you in order to run some tests on your wordpress installation?
    Regards.

    Hi Wayne,

    That's a known WordPress cron problem.

    When a WordPress has this problem, the best way to fix it is disable the WordPress cron (wp-cron.php) and use the server cron.

    Here you can see how to do that http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/wordpress/disabling-the-wp-cronphp-in-wordpress

    Kind regards

    I have encountered the very same problem. I have followed the instructions laid out here, but my question is this: what script exactly should I enter into the command field for my web hosting provider (Bluehost).

    Is it the same as in the example: cd /home/cpusrname/public_html; php -q wp-cron.php

    Also, am I supposed to keep the cron job set up in WangGuard settings or no?
