[resolved] wp=cron.php 404? (3 posts)

    I get this error

    wp-cron.php is returning a 404 Not Found response which could mean cron jobs aren't getting fired properly. BackUpWordPress relies on wp-cron to run scheduled back ups.

    wp-cron.php DOES exist in the file structure. I have verified that wp-config has not disabled cron.

    Ideas??

    Are your scheduled backups working?

    If your site is getting 404 response when trying to load wp-cron.php then that is likely an issue with your host.

    I would recommend contacting them and asking telling them about the issue

    I had the same issue.

    In my case, it was a conflict with Bulletproof Security Plugin. They have a fix listed on their site as a known conflict with their plugin.

    Here is the fix if you are using Bulletproof Security Plugin along with backupwordpress.

    You will need to alter some code in the bulletproof secure htaccess file as follows:

    1. Find: # REQUEST METHODS FILTERED
    2. remove HEAD from the Request Method filter.
    3. should now look like below

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} ^(TRACE|DELETE|TRACK|DEBUG) [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ - [F,L]
