WordPress Backup to Dropbox
[resolved] Backups only start after log-in, regardless of scheduled times. (4 posts)

    My backups, on several sites, are only starting after I've logged in. How can I change this, as I rarely visit the backend of my sites daily. I'm using version 1.3 on wp 3.4.2.

    Do you use a caching solution?

    If so you probably want to set up a unix cron to run the WP corn instead relying on a page hit to kick it off.

    A quick google search will yield lots of results on how this is done.

    You nailed it. Thanks for your help, Mikey.

    Did you run the cron job on wp-cron.php? I'm having the same problem and I set up a manual cron job to run wp-cron.php but so far it is not backing anything up until I log in to the dashboard with the only account (administrator), is there another php file that the cron should be running?

    oh and I'm not using anything for caching.
