CRON setup HELP!
« on: December 20, 2013, 06:09:13 PM »
I am not a php coder, but I did get your script installed and its working great. They only thing I need to do is set up a automatic cron job, so the generator runs once a day at 6AM ... Can someone help me create this cron job from scratch please??? I have NO clue as to how to do it.

Thank you!  :)

**Added Note: Thru cpanel, I created a 'cron job' that runs every day and the command I put in was 'public_html/MYDOMAINNAME/generator/runcrawl.php ' ... is that correct?

**Since the first post, I changed the cron to this :
/usr/local/bin/php   /home3/USER/public_html/MYDOMAINNAME/generator/runcrawl.php

This should work??
