My site needs to run several cron jobs that take up a lot of resources, so my VPS is under heavy load 🙁

The cron jobs mostly retrieve files, process them and saves data to the database, i.e. they don’t interact with WP itself.

I have therefore thought about offloading these cron jobs to somewhere else like an AWS server, but it’s not something I have tried before.

Anyone have experience offloading cron jobs or similar to somewhere else. Preferably somewhere managed, so I don’t need to worry about installing/maintaining anything besides my own code.

  • Put some context to your question, eg. cron action callback function, when/how it get trigger, what kind of file/processing your handling, etc. Most of the time optimizing code and increasing server resource helps gat around these problem. Aug 29, 2022 at 6:36
