How do I setup a cron job - we're on Windows Server
« on: September 13, 2011, 06:32:56 PM »
The crawling tab on control panel only indicates:
Cron job setup
You can use the following command line to setup the cron job for sitemap generator:
/usr/local/bin/php C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\DVPStore\generator/runcrawl.php

but our site is on a Windows server, not Linux...

You would need to contact your hosting support to find out exact command line that will work on your server (it depends on server configuration).

assuming he figures out exact command line, then what?  Where do you put that command line?  I understand 'on the server'...  but exactly how do you do this??

thank you

In your hosting control panel there must be a section for "scheduled tasks" where you can add new taswk and there will be a special input field for command line.
