PHP Question

Replace the WordPress Cron with a Real Cronjob every 30 minutes

I want to replace the wordpress cron job with real cron job in PHP.
I tried to change wp-config.php with the following line but it's not working.

define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', false);

Another requirement is that i want to run this every 30 minutes. So for I have made one cron job in cron job tab of cpanel so i tried it with minutes (0,30) and hour etc. with start.

I have mentioned error_reporting() in the code but it's not showing any error.


irst, you need to disable the file to be hit every time someone loads your pages. To do this, open the wp-config.php file in your main WordPress folder and add this line at the end, before the closing ?> tag.

define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true); 

And make your cron job setting like below picture. Change path of your cron job according to your cpanel directory.
