Use native (linux) cron on multisite network (2 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I am trying to figure out how to deactivate the internal WP cron (via wp-cron.php executed on every pageview) and use the native linux-cron.

    I am looking for "better" performance by running the cron once every x minutes (maybe 5 minute interval).

    BUT this simple task (on standalone WP installations) proofs to be a lot more difficult on WP MU installations. There are no resources I can find on this topic.

    I know this is a rarely used feature but it must be possible and that without degrading performance on growing installations (number of sites and hits on the WP MU installation).

    Any experience or ideas?

    Christian
