Cron problem

Cyril Malka

I am using an extern service for my cron-job ( since namecheap doesn't authorize cron-jobs more often than 15 minutes on the plan I have.

I can't find out of how to "translate" the cron job into a link

For instance:

/usr/bin/php-cli -q /home/my.account/public_html/ send-campaigns >/dev/null 2>&1

easycron needs a http://

So I put - it doesn't work. If I add: send-campaigns >/dev/null 2>&1
It says the url isn't valid.

How can I do to run these cronjobs through easycron?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

@Cyril Malka - You need to use real linux cron jobs not web crons, this is clearly stated in the product requirements ;)
Find a host that provides this, it's a sad joke that in they don't allow you to add cron jobs, and you should move away from them for this exact reason.

First, thank you for your answer.

Second, they do let me have cron-jobs, but on this plan, only every 15 minutes. If I want better, I'll have to have a vps.

Is it possible to have the cron running every 15 minutes? I mean, except from being a bit slow, will it mess up something?



Oh, that is so fine :) pfew!

It will do until we move to a vps or something like that (I just moved all of our domains and really don't want to do that again right now :) )

Thank you very much.
