  • Yep, I’m having this problem as well. But it’s only happening on 1 of my blogs.

    I had the same problem. I believe it is a problem of security with the host server.

    Have resolved it by changing the permissions of wp-cron.php which in the main folder of your blog and set permissions to 777. Easiest way for us was to use Filezilla to do this as our blog is on a separate server.

    I have solved to the problem of missed scheduled:

    – First I recognized that wordpress 2,8 is much more slow, is a fact.
    – Then I stopped looking for an error of programming. I started to find an excessive delay.
    – Then, reading, I discovered that schedule post was not a problem of WordPress 2,8 it is a symptom of a slow system.
    – Finally I found it the solution here: and consists of modifying the timeout in wp-includes/cron.php.
    Approximately in the line number 205 I changed
    wp_remote_post ($cron_url, Array (‘ timeout’ => 0.01, ‘ blocking’ => false));

    To 20 seconds:

    wp_remote_post ($cron_url, Array (‘ timeout’ => 20, ‘ blocking’ => false));

    Lamentably I have not get to scheduled post work nex to Hyper Cache (they only works together in WP 2,6) reason why you must to disconnect that plugin to see working scheduled post.
    It’s work for me. I hope help you.

    This plugin is what worked for me. Since the plugin author has made it compulsory to register at his blog, before you download the plugin I have made a copy available in my online shared storage. It works for both IIS and Apache servers.
