OK! I dumped that way of doing it, cause I couldnt’ get the cron to work.
I went back to this method:
and got it all to work. Even though that method is imperfect. I highly recommend anyone trying to set this up to read the talk page for that wiki.
I also highly recommend anyone doing a cron to check it in the shell first. The shell will give you errors the cron won’t unless you have it set to email you. I know this sounds obvious, but some of us are just learning this stuff.
My question now is, will running this cron once an hour have any ill effects? Will it ruin my logs, slow my server, cause undo load ect?
I’m really vain about my stats.
