    I’m getting these repeated Cron daemon errors emailed to me since setting up UpdraftPlus.

    (Cron Daemon)
    Cron <*******@mi3-ss52> cd ${HOME}/public_html; /usr/local/bin/php wp-cron.php
    To: admin@*****.org 
    Use of uninitialized value in numeric gt (>) at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Filesys/Mounts.pm line 205.

    Like this user with the exact same issue, I have WP_CRON_DISABLED set to true and call wp-cron.php periodically with a real cron job shown in the error.

    Responding to that earlier topic, you said that these were inconsequential and not caused by Updraft. But there must be something different from the cron jobs set by wordpress and other plugins, as those don’t lead to this error. I just don’t like errors.

    It sounds like your WordPress scheduler may be broken.
    To confirm this, can you install a plugin called WP-Crontrol? This will allow you to see all scheduled tasks that WordPress is handling. Then could you navigate to Tools->Cron Events, and send me a screenshot of that page? We’ll be able to work out if the scheduler is working correctly.

    We also have a guide to this issue in our FAQs here. This provides some further advice that you can try.

    This is a programming message about a coding defect in cPanel. You’d have to find a cPanel forum in order to report that. UpdraftPlus, if it finds it’s running in a cPanel environment, can talk to cPanel (to find out about available disk space). But it can’t either cause or prevent coding issues inside cPanel itself, so if the messages are troublesome the only thing you can do is talk to them.

    OK, thanks, I give up 🙁
    I just turned off error notification in the cron job that calls wp-cron.
