Support » Plugin: WP Crontrol » Cron job duplicate itself and unable to delete cron job

  • Hi,

    i am facing 2 issue when managing cron job.
    I have created a set of 8 cron jobs..somehow, i made some modification to the cron job(changing time interval), it replicates itself and turn into 16 cron jobs.

    Now when i try to delete them, a ‘successful deletion’ message appear but the cron job is actually still there.

    How can i fix this

  • I have the same issue. Two cron jobs keep duplicating themselves and deleting is impossible.

    Anybody found a solution?

    I tried via the DB but if I modify something there all my manual cron jobs (20+) disappear so deleting all and rebuilding everything is not really a nice option either.

    I have the same problem, not only does it not delete the action, but also copies it. This is not super!

    ogessel,where exactly do you delete these events in the database?

    Hi Nikkon, you can find it in wp-options table. Search for cron with e.g. phpmyadmin and you’ll find a record named cron. There you will find an long array in which all the cron events are stored.

    Beware, when you delete this field or part of it, all your own crons but also crons from plugins etc will disappear at first. But the ones from the plugins will be regenerated immediately so no worries there.

    But you will loose all of your own crons.

    Hope I could help you out a little. I still have the same issue once in a while, actually last week. Had to rebuild all 18 crons manually again. Really annoying…

    Anyway, good luck!

    Thanks, ogessel, I’ll try not to hurt, then how can I do it.

    What do you mean?

    Thanks, ogessel, your recommendations helped. But what happens to the plugin is not normal. I hope someone can figure it out!
