  • Resolved rootstone


    Hi Support,

    I tried to backup in WP 4.7.4, but failed with this error message:

    WP Http Error: cURL error 35: gnutls_handshake() failed: A TLS fatal alert has been received.

    Then I upgraded to 4.8, and the error message stays. what’s the issue? How could I resolve it?

    Many thanks~~

  • Hi @rootstone, this is an error with curl and how it is compiled on your host.

    My recommendation for this type of situation is to disable wp_cron, and running it manually with php in a cronjob.

    You can disable wp_cron by putting this in your wp-config.php:

    define( 'DISABLE_WP_CRON', true );

    Then create a cronjob to run say every 10 minutes or so, with something like this:

    cd /home/username/public_html; php -q wp-cron.php

    Your host should be able to provide more details on exactly how to set that up, but we’re happy to answer your questions.
