Cron Job

Hi I’m new to cron jobs and I need to set one up for jadmin on my joomla site.
The recommended code to run the job is from jadmin documentation.

*/5 * * * * www-data php /var/www/vhosts/ >/dev/null 2>&1

You will need to replace the path above with your path to the jadmin.cron.php file.
You will also need to replace the www-data user with your webserver user, for example apache.

But this code is not working with the cron job web panel.any help is appreciated.

ssh into your account and type “locate jadmin.cron.php”. It will give you the full path. I think the full path should be something like “/home/yourusername/yourdomain/components/com_jadmin/jadmin.cron.php”.

Once you have the full path, you can set up crontab job like the following

*/5 * * * php FULLPATH/jadmin.cron.php >/dev/null 2>&1

You can discard the username when you set up the crontab job because each user has its own contab job settings. By default, it will run the owners jobs only.

Thank you it works like a charm now.

I’m glad you have it sorted out :stuck_out_tongue:
