Question:

I installed WordPress Newsletter on my server, and I want to set up a cron job to trigger WordPress Newsletter's cron job script. What should I do to set up the cron job?

Answer:

As recommended by WordPress Newsletter officially at here, you may use EasyCron to trigger cron job script in WordPress Newsletter.

Our webcron service is best for triggering WordPress Newsletter's cron job script. Just follow below simple steps to configure cron job for your WordPress Newsletter:

  1. Before using EasyCron, please add define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true); to your wp-config.php file to disable the WP Cron System.
  2. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  3. In field "URL to call", enter http://www.example.com/wp-cron.php (replace www.example.com with your install location). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy (for WordPress Newsletter, we recommend to have the cron job run "each 5 minutes"). Checkout below screenshot:
