Automate crawl
« on: May 20, 2006, 11:09:09 AM »
I am very pleased with the script although it does time out so I would like to automate the crawl, I am on a windows server and have been informed that I can not use a cron session, can you please advise if I can set up automated crawl.

there are cron alternatives for windows systems available for free, you can find them by searching in a search engine. I didn't tried them to suggest only one of them.
Let us know which one worked best for you :)

Did you find an answer to this?

We are running a shared windows server (so dont have access to install any programs on the server)

I thought we could schedule one of our company servers to navigate to the runcrawl.php page, however this cannot be run remotely.  Could this be configured to do so?
