  • Hi,

    We recommend setting up a server level cron as shown here:

    Setting it to run once per minute would be ideal.

    Clearly there is a problem and they are trying to explain us that we are idiots…

    Maybe time to check your plugin and find what is wrong ?!

    Thank you.

    We’re looking at getting a fix for this in the next bugfix release, due out soon.

    We do plan to keep the cron health check in place since Offload SES requires a cron (server-level or otherwise) to send out emails.

    But it does seem that the check as it is now is a bit overzealous, hopefully dialing back the time between checks will resolve the issue.

    In the meantime, we do still recommend setting up a server-level cron where possible, to run at least every 5 minutes (or 1 minute on higher-traffic sites).

    We’ve just released a new version, 1.4.2, which should address these issues.

    The cron check interval has been increased to six hours by default, which should reduce a lot of the false positives that were being sent out.

    This can still be changed with the wposes_cron_check_interval filter – just return the number in seconds that you want to wait between cron checks.

    We’ve also introduced a new wposes_send_cron_error_email filter that can be used if you want to disable the failed cron email altogether – returning false will disable the emails in the future.

    While investigating we found a few other bugs with the cron check and these have all been fixed as well.


    no more “WP Offload SES – Cron not running” emails now !
