WP Cron HTTP Auth

[ WP Cron HTTP Auth ] Welcome to the official homepage for my free WordPress plugin, WP Cron HTTP Auth. This page explains what the plugin does, how it works, and where to download and get support. The plugin actually is very simple, however, so there is not a lot to explain.

If you are looking for plugin documentation, visit WP Cron HTTP Auth at WordPress.org. There you will find installation steps, support forum, translation tools, and more.

About the plugin

tl;dr: This plugin enables WP Cron on sites that have enabled HTTP Authorization (i.e., password protection via Apache server).

I develop most of my sites on a secure HTTP-Auth-protected domain. The only problem is that by default, WP Cron doesn’t work when HTTP Authorization is required. This simple plugin solves that problem by providing the necessary authentication to WordPress. Visit the plugin settings, enter your HTTP Auth credentials, save changes and done.

How to use

Visit the plugin settings, enter your HTTP Auth credentials, save changes, and done. If the auth credentials are correct, WP Cron will work properly on your WordPress-powered site.
