Cron postie

wordpress

#1

I am trying to get postie to autopost. I have dreamhost and I have tried a bunch of different variations of cron jobs to do this:

/wp-content/plugins/postie/get_mail.php

none have worked. Anyone have any luck with dreamhost and cron jobs?

Sin your calling php you need to tell cron that…

something like
/usr/local/php5/bin/php /home///wp-content/plugins/postie/get_mail.php

note there SHOULD be a space after /usr/local/php5/bin/php follow by the full path to the file.

alternatively you can use a different php as well… just specify it…
