    Hi,

    i’ve just installed backupwordpress plugin on Windows 2008 R2 server.

    When i try to make a backup, I get the following error : “BackUpWordPress has detected a problem. wp-cron.php is returning a 401 response which could mean cron jobs aren’t getting fired properly. BackUpWordPress relies on wp-cron to run back ups in a separate process.”

    Thanks,

  • I had a similar error, due to the fact that my installation was in a protected directory.
    To solve this error, make sure that wp-cron.php is accesable, so exclude this file from being protected.

    Thanks Buzzard01

    I have not done much work on this part of the plugin – but let me know how you get on with Buzzard01’s advice.

    If wp-cron.php is not working properly, you may also be having other problems too – For example WordPress uses cron to schedule updates etc

    Thanks Buzzard01.
    I’m not a expert on Windows 2008 R2 server. I try to set all the permission “Full control” to IIS_IUSRS and modify the .htaccess of the directory c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wp-content\backups with “allow from all” …I also set the permission “Full control” for the file “wp-cron.php” but i always have the same error… Do you have more precisions about the configurations of permissions Buzzard01 ?

    Could there be a problem with / and \ on Windows env ? I set this on the wp-config.php : define(‘HMBKP’, ‘c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wp-content\backups’); but i see this on the back-office c:/inetpub/wwwroot/wp-content/backups

    Thanks,

    I am getting the same “BackUpWordPress has detected a problem. wp-cron.php is returning a 401 response which could mean cron jobs aren’t getting fired properly. BackUpWordPress relies on wp-cron to run back ups in a separate process.”

    My blog is running in Linux and it worked until a few weeks ago. Could a plugin be the problem?

    What do you see if you try to visit /wp-cron.php on your site?

    Is your site behind a htpasswd login?

    What domain are you having issues with?

    If you don’t want to post this publicly you can email the details to support@humanmade.co.uk.

    Thanks a lot Tom, you nailed it. Access to the setup is restricted by http authentication while it is under development.
