Disabling or enabling the WordPress cron

To disable the internal WordPress cron job system, open the wp-config.php file in the root of your WordPress installation and locate the following line:


define('DB_COLLATE', '');  -  Right under it, add the following code: define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);


If you want to enable the WordPress cron, you will need to change it to:


define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', false);


Note: You can modify the wp-config.php file via FTP, SSH or File Manager in cPanel.
