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!

It goes without saying but MooTools' inheritance pattern allows for creation of small, simple classes that possess immense power. One example of that power is a class that inherits from Request, Request.JSON, and Request.JSONP: Request.Stocks. Created by Enrique Erne, this great MooTools class acts as...
