Support » Everything else WordPress » Directly calling WP php files rather than getting the page

  • This came up in a discussion of running cron jobs. What is the difference between using wget or a web browser to get a page and just calling /usr/bin/php to interpret the file?

    Do the php files load everything that is needed, or do they need WordPress running under a web server to load all of this stuff?

  • Don’t know if I understood precisely your question, but page content is stored in mysql tables, so if you don’t load all WP functionalities you won’t be able to retrieve them.

    More specifically, if you run /usr/bin/php wp_cron.php from a command line or cron, will it work the same as using wget on the URL.
