    Hi, Hope someone can help - I'm having using automated #backupwordpress.

    The issue is described as:
    wp-cron.php is returning a Failure when receiving data from the peer

    However manual back ups do run and are successful.

    Helps material suggest inserting:
    define( 'ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true )
    within wp-cron.php
    But I don't know where to place it to see if that works?

    I'm afraid I'm not a coder so can anyone assist with this issue please?

    Thanks in advance

    Place that line in your wp-config.php file just above : that's all, happy blogging
    don't forget the trailing semicolon
