Scheduled Posts never publish


If you’re looking for some help, it’s important to provide as much context as possible so that people are able to assist you. Try to always mention:

  • What’s your URL? This is the easiest way for others to debug your issue -
  • What version of Ghost are you using?2.20.1
  • What configuration?Standard
  • What browser?All
  • What errors or information do you see in the console? Scheduled posts never post
  • What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having? Create a scheduled post, with default config.

I can see that many people are having issues with Scheduled posts not posting at their scheduled times. Each potential fix appears different and i do ask for help fixing mine. I have read the other posts and tried the suggestions, but i cannot seem to get this fixed.

I do have CDN with Stackpath, not sure if that’s part of the issue. Any help would be great. Please note I am pretty new to this.

What i have found is that if i restart ghost, right before a scheduled post, it will work, but if i set up a bunch of posts and wait, nothing happens.


Hi @scotdill :wave: I’ve seen similar problem popping up a few times as well and would really love to get to the bottom of it :slight_smile: If you could please provide the information answering these questions: #8485 (comment) and #8485 (comment), in this issue - If there’s a clear path to reproduce it would gladly reopen the issue and fix this bug :+1: Let me know if you need any help.



For #8485

If I set a bunch of articles to publish, they never publish. ( every other day to help with SEO )

Then, if I restart ghost and set them to publish in three min or so, they will publish.

For the second #8485,

My blog is set for EST time zone. I am in EST.

Server is in EST

I am creating 10 or so posts and publishing them every two days.

Not sure what else to say here, nothing is tweaked as far as my ghost files go. I just changed web hosts this week, to create the fasted possible experience ( plus I have other sites… so now have a dedicated server )

So, where im going with this is I have all my server logs, there isn’t too much as it’s a new host, I can send them all in if it will help!

No need to send all the logs just yet, but would be good to know if there’s anything extraordinary happening in logs around publishing time so that the scheduler doesn’t kick in?


I have a few more articles to post.

Ill do them now, and then watch it, and if they are missed ill send the logs for that specific time.

The logs are long as is right now, and I don’t recall the specific times I set the articles to be live… but ill test this for you and record the times so its easy to look up.

Ill respond back in a few days.

Thank you for the help!


Awesome. Hopefully this will shed some light on the issue :+1:



I have the log files.

Personally, I don’t see the time stamps, but they just literally failed to publish again. Is there an email or location I can upload the logs?


Hey @scotdill You can send the logs to

If you have any more posts coming in the queue, would be helpful if you could enable debug level of logs to see a little bit more information on when the schedueling is being rung as described here.
