I'm not 100% sure, but that'd be my guess. If you need to check every
minute, I'd suggest setting up a cron job on your server to request the
In cPanel you'd go in to the cron manager and create a new job with all *'s
(run every minute, hour, day...). And have the command be something like
"wget http://www.yoursite.com/wp-cron.php -o /dev/null" Alternatively you
might be able to execute it as a php script (untested) "php
/path/to/wp-cron.php > /dev/null".
If you don't have cPanel, but you have shell/root access, you can create a
"real" crontab to do the same thing. Just Google "Linux create crontab".
If you can't use either of these methods, wp-cron.php should also be
requested every time your website is loaded, which, depending on your level
of traffic, might be Ok.
Hope this helps!
