I’ve made a PHP script, and according to the docs, I should be able to just paste a URL to the script right into the script textarea. However, it doesn’t seem to be working.
The settings I used are:
Day of Week: *
Script: [Web URL of script]
The script doesn’t seem to have gone off at 6pm as I had requested. Do I need something else, to make it a CLI command? I had assumed from the wording of the docs that Interworx might be able to tell if it was a URL and act appropriately.
CRON isn’t expecting a URL, it’s expecting a shell command.
For example: if I have a script called cron.php and it’s not executable, then I would enter php /path/to/script/cron.php in the script section.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the response. You might want to clarify that in your documentation then.
In any case, I’ve gone ahead and used a curl command to do what I wanted. I used the -I flag to just return the header as opposed to the full page.
curl -I “http://www.domain.come/path/to/script.php”
Could you be more specific which documentation is unclear? We would like to fix this to prevent future confusion!
Thanks for the heads up purefusion, we’ll get that corrected!
