Forgive my "beginnerness" in this matter but I have 2 options to trigger a heavy task (massive update on users' properties to solve an issue between 2 plugins that weren't meant to cooperate):
- (1) Use Unix Cron in my server OR
- (2) Use WP-Cron
I do prefer to do everything IN WordPress and use WP-Cron if they are similiar but (from my undestanding) since wp-cron is a pseudo-cron that waits for some visitor to come and trigger it, I fear it might be too heavy of a task to slow user's experience during navigation.
Does it have the potential to do so? Should we actually use Unix Cron whenever possible to try to perform most of maintenance tasks ideally when there's low traffic or no traffic at all?
Thank you very much for the help :D !
