Use wordpress cron the best way
for background info read this: https://spinupwp.com/doc/understanding-wp-cron/
cloudways advises to run cron by using wget:
*/5 * * * * wget https://WWW.EXAMPLE.COM/wp-cron.php #CloudwaysApps
but it is better to avoid extra https calls and do it directly on the server, you can use wp-cli for this:
*/5 * * * * cd /home/master/applications/YOUR-APP-ID/public_html && wp cron event run --all --due-now
This is better in my opinion, because no https call is needed.
what do you think?
