Cron is not working as expected. If i schedule post or Event Manager event it never get published if the site is accessed after published time.

If i go to http://somedomain.tld/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron it's empty instead debugging is set on. Should it be empty or should it display some errors if there is any?

Error log is empty.

WP Crontrol plugin displays cron jobs.

enter image description here

Any hint what to check next?

  • is the "wp-cron.php" publicly accessible ? e.g. if there is a password protection with .htaccess file, WordPress cannot acces is own wp-cron.php
