CiviCRM CRON job on Joomla with Dreamhost



I’m having trouble getting a cron job set to trigger enabled jobs on Civicrm.

The script provided by CiviCRM for a Joomla installation is:

wget -O - -q -t 1 http://domain/Joomla/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/bin/cron.php?name=username&pass=password&key=sit-key

Not sure if this is an appropriate format for how DreamHost handles jobs. Am I missing something?

I replace the domain, username, password and site-key, but it isn’t working. Also, I don’t know how to check the event log to see what errors, if any, are being reported.

Your time is appreciated.
