Thread: PHP URL to Cron

  1. #1

    PHP URL to Cron

    I have a reseller Cpanel account with limited shell access. I also have a URL from my website that can run a php script. I want to set that URL to run as a cron. The URL has ? = &.

    When I try to run the script from shell, I get a could not open input file. How can I set the url up as a cron to run?

    Hello,

    Is the script hosted on the same server or remotely? You cant execute remote php code, it will run on the server an output the results. If its hosted on the server use the exact location like /home/username/scriptname and create a cron that way.

    I set up the cron in cpanel and used curl. It worked. e.g curl "http://... "

    Thanks to both for your help!
