Step 3: Configure Cron Job

First, you need to decide how often the cron job will run. We have a drop down with some predefined values to select or you can set your own.

You can then set the type of script that you will be running (PHP, curl, or wget) and the command to execute. Click on submit to save.

Your cron job will be listed under the Basic tab once done.

Important Notes:

  • Only account owners or team members with full privileges can edit cron jobs via the Advanced tab.
  • On the basic tab, we do not allow any switches for wget and curl.  Please utilize the Advanced tab to apply switches.
