  • Update on this is that it appears to be Better WP Security Plug in that is causing my scheduled Backups to not work unless I am logged in. Just disabling BWPS did not work, so I activated it again and switched everything I could off in hte plugin and then I got my scheduled backup to work. Struggling to find the setting in BWPS that is causing the problem but if I find it I will let you know.

    If anyone else has had any issues with BWPS Plug in and WordPress Backup to Dropbox and solved them, I would appreciate some info.

    All the best, David

    If BWPS is stopping wp-cron from executing tasks then it is breaking a core feature of WordPress and you should raise this with the plugin developer.


    Hi Michael, my apologies, I should have updated this post. After spending ages on the wrong track, I realised that this was nothing to do with Backup to DropBox or BWPS Plugin. It was simply that WordPress chron needs the site to be visited before it kicks in. I didn’t know that when I first posted, but I do now. My site was a test site and therefore I was about the only person visiting it and mostly when I was logged in, hence it seemed that BU2DBox was only working at that point. Maybe my foolishness will be a lesson to others :-).

    Thank you, all the best, David
