Auto crawling
« on: May 12, 2009, 08:57:14 AM »
Hi
Probably a stupid question. I installed the soft on my site and I would like to know if it is possible to crawl the site automatically, for example every 2 days ? If yes how ?
Regards

Hello,

yes, it is possible.
You should setup a scheduled task (cron job) in your hosting control panel for that, the command line for cron task is displayed on generator Crawling page.

Hi
I've seen the runcrawl.php on the Crawling page, but I don't understand how I can fit this and where i must add this command line ?
Can you explain or send me a link where this is explained.
Thanks

Hello,

it should be configured in your hosting control panel, exact steps would depend on your host. You should contact your hosting support for details on how it's configured on your server.

Hi
No information from the hosting support : they told me that they cannot help me, I have to see with the software manufacturer.
So ???
Thanks

Can't say for sure, may be your host doesn't provide scheduled tasks functionaility.
For instance, in cPanel after logging in you would select "Cron jobs" item, then just enter the command line to run and save the task.

Hi it finally works. As my server is in french it was a litlle bit more difficult to find the solution. I have a way to plan task on the server and need only to copy the code : www/generator/runcrawl.php, then indicates when I want this code to be run.
Just a question : it asks me if it is php4 or php 5 ?
Thanks a lot.

Hello,

sitemap generator supports both PHP4 and PHP5, so it should work in any case.
