Hi and thanks for looking at this.
I doesn't look like the server time is being picked up right by the plugin. I'm using 9am instead of 2am is because as you can see the Current Server Time is show by the plugin is not correct. It is showing me UTC, not PST.
Here's what the settings display:
Current server time is: 2012-01-27 01:57:43
Next scheduled garbage collection will be at (YY-MM-DD H:M:S): 2012-01-27 09:00:00
Cache Timeout: 43200
Scheduler: Clock: 09:00
Interval: Hourly (BTW this seems like another bug, because I have tried changing this interval to "Daily" but it doesn't stick, every time I load the settings it is back to Hourly on the drop down. Any idea how to fix this?)
In the WP General Settings I have these Settings:
Timezone: Los Angeles
UTC time is 2012-01-27 1:57:21
Local time is 2012-01-26 17:57:21
Side (main) note: Actually this is pretty much the main reason I'm trying to fix this timing issue. Every day precisely at 5pm the website comes to a complete crawl and index.php starts using up about 30% of CPU. This is really something major that I need to address soon. I'm guessing this has to do with cached pages being recreated. If you have any tips on how to fix this issue I would really appreciate it. Is there maybe a way to log what exactly WSC GC is doing and when?
Also, what does the Notification Emails checkbox do?
