Support » Installing WordPress » (WP 3.0 )Warning: fopen(http://abc.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron)

  • Hi.

    I’ve just installed WP 3.0 and I get this error message on the front page:

    Warning: fopen(http://abc.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! in I:\Development\wamp\www\mysite\wp-includes\class-http.php on line 1045

    I’m running WAMP server 2.0i
    PHP 5.3.0
    Apache 2.2.11

    Anyone know what this might be?

  • I think it’s just wp-cron trying to run certain 12 hourly tasks. From what I recall, fopen isn’t supported on Windows, hence the warming message. I simply ignore it on my local dev installs. Refresh the page and you’ll see that the warning disappears for 12 hours or so.

    I Actually found something here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/11831

    Not that it solves my problem, but at least it’s getting some attention.
