Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Next Cron Job Shows Dec 31, 1969

  • I’m using the latest version of backwpup

    Whenever I schedule a wp-cron job the next date always shows as Dec 31, 1969. This means it never runs (obviously).

    Even if I delete the job and re-add it, it still shows the wrong date.

    Any idea why this is happening? Thanks.

    Hi Daniel

    I also have this on one site. IT’s a fairly heavily trafficked site so I doubt it’s just a cron issue; I also call wp-cron.php by cron job every 5 minutes.

    BackWPup displays the time that be saved in the WordPress cron, not a own timestamp.

    I would really resolve this, but in moment i can’t reproduce it. That is why i need help from People with this problem.

    Drats. I manually ran one of the two jobs on that site, and they both reset to a real date. I’ll keep an ey eout as I have backwpup running in several sites.

    Hi Dan!

    I just tried to email you at the address above but it bounced back. Can you see if you had a typo? Thanks!
