    Hello,

    I have a problem with the wordpress cron jobs becouse the wp-cron.php is not being run often enough. So I set up a PHP cron job on my cPanel. But the cron job doesn’t work on shared hosting by bluehost. The problem is described here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48611926/bluehost-cronjob-setting-changes-without-my-intervention
    Yes, it is a 5-year-old problem and bluehost still doesn’t have a solution for it.

    So i’m thinking about using a free external site for executing the cron file every minute. But I read about that a cron job should not be done via an HTTP request but a direct execution of PHP to avoid hindering the web server’s capacity or generating additional memory overhead on the network layer.

    What do you think about this? Will I expereince serious problems with my site if I let the cron job done via HTTP every minute?

    Thank you for your support.

    Hi, it can be triggered via HTTP, not problems usually, just set the corn call to https://yoursite.com/wp-cron.php.
