Fix WordPress CRONs on Media Temple (dv) Servers
When I switched from Dreamhost shared hosting to Media Temple (dv) server hosting, I had a hell of a time trying to figure out why CRONs weren't working correctly on the website. I had database backups being sent via CRON jobs so making sure CRONs were working was imperative. What's great is that the way to make these Wordpress CRONs work was by...setting up a CRON.
To get things working, you should:
- Log into your Media Temple (dv) control panel.
- Navigate to the domain and click the "Crontab" icon.
- Click "Schedule a Task"
- Configure the time and frequency of the CRON to any way you'd like.
- Set the "command" value to:
- Replace the fake IP in the command above with the IP address of your website.
That's all! Hitting the wp-cron.php file with the CRON will ensure you database backups and other scheduled tasks will run at proper intervals!

Aaron Newton made a great request to me last week: why not make my MooTools Documentation Bookmarklet function more like the New York Time's text selection widget. NYT's text selection widget listens for text selection and presents the user with a "search" icon...
How’s the service been like for you. I have a few sites that I want to move over to Media Temple from DH. I am shopping around right and I wanted to ask your opinion. thanx
@Roozbeh: Quality is what I expected but I think I’m going to move away, at least from (dv). It’s $50 and I don’t think I’d like to save on some cost.
Why are you using an IP-address for wget?
Why did you move away from Dreamhost? Were you not happy with their service? Or did you outgrow shared hosting?
