I'm writing a plugin for integrating WP with Visma. It will basically spit out an XML file every third hour using wp cron (going to setup server cron for
wp-cron.php on the live site) and save it to the uploads folder.
I got everything working when doing this manually (submit in wp-admin). However when running the cron function it seems
$wp_filesystem isn't accessible nor is it possible to set it up with
request_filesystem_credentials(). If I try to run
request_filesystem_credentials() in the cron function I get an error saying the function does not exist. If I leave it to my other function (hooked into
$wp_filesystem is just empty (non existent).
I'm trying to save stuff to uploads-folder in a cron function.
I've tried setting the FTP constants in
wp-config.php. I've tried setting the priority of the
wp_filesystem setup function to 1 (to make sure it runs as soon as possible).
I'd prefer using the
wp_filesystem since it has so many benefits in terms of stability and security.
