Support » Plugin: Redis Object Cache » Plugin broke WP Cron

  • Niels Pilon



    It took a while to debug but this plugin broke the wp-cron functionality for a site.

    I don’t have much technical details as it’s a shared hosting account but could reproduce the issue on our own VPS which was used as a dev site. WP version was 5.3 with PHP 7.1 for both installs

    The error that pointed in the direction of the plugin is that I got a cURL 28 error for the wp-cron file.

    I’ve also notified the shared hosting company as they recommend this plugin. But unfortunaltely it broke the wp-cron for this site.

    Kind regards,

    Have same issue. WP cron stopped working because cron lock always gets into that “return” in wp-cron.php code

    if ( $doing_cron_transient && ( $doing_cron_transient + WP_CRON_LOCK_TIMEOUT > $gmt_time ) ) {

    @nielspilon: What plugin version are you running? Are you seeing any particular error in your logs?

    I think v1.5.4 should fix this, but I’m not sure.

    Client was using the 1.4.1 version and I thought that was the most recent one as there was no update notification visible.

    Didn’t check any further so it could be that 1.5.4 fixes this issue. Can’t test it anymore though as the client already disabled Redis caching on his hosting account.

    Error log didn’t show any errors.
