Tasks are actions that have been performed on your WordPress site. Any action performed on your WordPress site goes through the task and only one task can be running in a given time, all other will be in a pending state and executed once the running task end, one by one. It is very important that the site be compatible with WP-CLI, otherwise, most of our tasks will fail.
You can view your application tasks in Site -> Tasks.
WP-CLI is the official command line tool for interacting with and managing WordPress sites and many of the task types require your site to be compatible with WP-CLI. We run two WP-CLI commands to ensure site does not throw a fatal error:
- wp core version -> Should return WordPress version
- wp option get siteurl -> Should return site main URL
There are some plugins who will prevent WP-CLI to work properly or will throw errors. To see the WP-CLI output from our task, go to the task details page and click on View WP-CLI Output button or run the above commands via SSH to regenerate the output.
Also, there is a well-known issue with a “maintenance mode” feature in the plugins or themes that returns HTML code and you should contact the authors to make it compatible with WP-CLI as this tool is used by many web hosting services or better said, by all managed WordPress hosting services.
