Support » Plugin: Two Factor Authentication » Cron Job being blocked by 2FA

  • Resolved vshura


    Hi all.

    I’m using CiviCRM plugin, which requires a cron job set up, which gets a https page with the username and password appended on to it. Specifically, the cron job executes the following

    php ~/www/www/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/bin/cli.php -u username -p password -e Job -a execute

    When the 2FA plugin is switched off, it works perfectly. When it’s switched on, I get the following (I’ve made some redactions for security):

    Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function get_option() on null in /***Path***/www/www/wp-content/plugins/two-factor-authentication/includes/class-simba-tfa.php:526

    # in /***Path***/www/www/wp-content/plugins/two-factor-authentication/includes/class-simba-tfa.php on line 526

    But 2FA is not a requirement of the WordPress user being invoked, nor it is a requirement for the role of that user.

    Can anyone advise?

    This indicates that the script – /www/www/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/bin/cli.php – is not setting up the WordPress environment correctly. However, we can work around that. Please try the just-released version 1.5.5.

    Great, thanks David. I updated and now it works perfectly.
