[Resolved] Jobs are still running even after deactivation and deletion!

  • Thanks for the suggestion!

    So, I scanned with that, but NOTHING was related to BackWPup, only stuff related to active plugins (but not BackWPup).

    And it continues… Had more backups processed last night, and I deactivated and then deleted the BackWPup plugin days ago! What to do?

    I found this thread helpful, but does anyone know the exact name I should use for "cron_name"? Thanks!

    Thread: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/23412/cron-jobs-for-deactivated-plugins

    Code snippet for functions.php:

    add_action("init", "clear_crons_left");
    function clear_crons_left() {

    Hello Chris M. you might also want to look at the this plugin WP Control. It might help you find out why your cron is still running.

    Kind regards

    Hey @mbrsolution!

    Thanks! That’s a really nifty plugin.

    The only thing that I didn’t recognize in there was: wp_scheduled_delete, which is set to run once a day (“1 day”). Any ideas what that is?

    Didn’t see anything that could be linked to BackWPup though…

    Other ideas???

    Oh, and I even reinstalled BackWPup to see if there would be any jobs listed in there still. NOPE. Nothing. No jobs… But I still have jobs running on my site (at least since I started this thread).

    Hi Chris M. you might want to try the following.

    1 ) Disable all your plugins and run the plugin I mentioned above.
    2 ) Also see if you can read your log files, there must be something in the log files that points to the cron job or plugin that is running on the back ground.

    Kind regards

    Thanks for the followup.

    Re: 2) — What log, and where on the server?


    There has to be a log file directory in your server. Also did you set up anything from your server to run regularly?

    If none of the above has helped you then I suggest that you contact your Server administrator and find out what is triggering your cron job. After all it might not have anything to do with the plugin. This is just an observation, I could be wrong.

    I believe anything is worth a try as long as the end result is what you want.

    Kind regards

    Hahahahahahaha… I am going to die. It was from another WordPress installation on the same domain that I totally forgot about! Problem solved.

    Found out about some cool tools and plugins in this thread though, so thanks!
