Support » Plugin: Very Simple Password for WordPress » Plugin blocks Backup – Developer Solution

  • Hi,
    I really appreciate this plugin it is perfect for what I need.

    Bug/issue is it blocks the plugin BackupBuddy from running a backup. It just spins and doesn’t complete.

    Here is the reply from the developers at BackupBuddy to fix this:
    “On your issue one of our developers took a look at this for you and mentioned that it might be pretty easy for the developers to simply add an access to wp-cron.php as a ‘whitelisted’ url where no password is requested – if they want they could check the access comes from the server IP which would be the usual case although sometimes on an http loopback the access can appear to come from another IP dependent on how the hosting is set up. Though, I would say as the http loopback to wp-cron.php is WordPress Core functionality they should simply whitelist it regardless especially as some users will set up an external server cron to ping that url rather than use the WordPress http loopback.

    Basically it’s a few lines of code to stop breaking WordPress Core functionality which I suppose they could make an option to allow or not and then they can claim the functionality as many other such plugins blindly block access to wp-cron.php thus breaking WordPress Core. So if the developers of that plugin have a way to contact them and you wish to you can relay that information and they may be able to upgrade their product some to have further functionality.”

    Would you consider adding this fix?
    Thank you!

    Hello buddy, sorry for taking so long to answer. Thanks a lot for your constructive feedback, this project has been stopped for quite some time, I plan to update it some time soon, and I will take that into consideration.
