Wp-cron.php Returning "401 Unauthorized" on IIS (2 posts)

    I've noticed in the FAQ and various support threads that the wp-cron.php / 401 Unauthorized error can typically happen on a secure site requiring authentication. Mine indeed uses Windows Authentication against Active Directory. For security reasons, I cannot change that or open the site up to the internet.

    Am I out of luck, then? Or is there a work-around? Perhaps a way to operate BackUpWordpress under a domain account?
