wp_reschedule_event( int $timestamp, string $recurrence, string $hook, array $args = array(), bool $wp_error = false )

Reschedules a recurring event.


Description Description

Mainly for internal use, this takes the time stamp of a previously run recurring event and reschedules it for its next run.

To change upcoming scheduled events, use wp_schedule_event() to change the recurrence frequency.

	/**
	 * Filter to preflight or hijack rescheduling of events.
	 *
	 * Returning a non-null value will short-circuit the normal rescheduling
	 * process, causing the function to return the filtered value instead.
	 *
	 * For plugins replacing wp-cron, return true if the event was successfully
	 * rescheduled, false if not.
	 *
	 * @since 5.1.0
	 * @since 5.7.0 The `$wp_error` parameter was added, and a `WP_Error` object can now be returned.
	 *
	 * @param null|bool|WP_Error $pre      Value to return instead. Default null to continue adding the event.
	 * @param stdClass           $event    {
	 *     An object containing an event's data.
	 *
	 *     @type string       $hook      Action hook to execute when the event is run.
	 *     @type int          $timestamp Unix timestamp (UTC) for when to next run the event.
	 *     @type string|false $schedule  How often the event should subsequently recur.
	 *     @type array        $args      Array containing each separate argument to pass to the hook's callback function.
	 *     @type int          $interval  The interval time in seconds for the schedule. Only present for recurring events.
	 * }
	 * @param bool               $wp_error Whether to return a WP_Error on failure.
