    Disable Task Scheduler Completely

    This might be a long shot but is it possible to completely disable the Task Scheduler in v6 so that it is not called every 60 seconds? I understand this will prevent scheduled publishing from taking place but that is not needed in this case.

    The reason for the request is as a short term fix due to an increasing number of errors being logged in a production site that cannot be immediately upgraded, the logs are being flooded with exceptions like this:

    2015-10-27 02:58:16,995 [35] ERROR Umbraco.Web.Scheduling.ScheduledPublishing [(null)] - [Thread 35] An error occurred with the scheduled publishing
    System.Net.WebException: The operation has timed out
       at System.Net.WebClient.UploadDataInternal(Uri address, String method, Byte[] data, WebRequest& request)
       at System.Net.WebClient.UploadString(Uri address, String method, String data)
       at Umbraco.Web.Scheduling.ScheduledPublishing.Start(ApplicationContext appContext)

    Thanks, Simon

    Still none the wiser but managed to upgrade to v6.2.5 today and so relieved to no longer have my inbox hammered EVERY minute by these errors!

    I spoke to soon, I just got hammered again! I've now added baseUrl attribute and value to the scheduledTasks node as per

    This has so far stemmed the stream of exceptions again.
