How do I run Cron jobs for phpAdsNew on Dreamhost?


#1

Yes I have seen the wiki article at:
http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Cron

And followed the instructions in the phpAdsNew Manual but I cannot seem to get it to work - any help please?

The wiki has been updated since I last looked - it is now understandable

Also beware using the command crontab -e causes a problem when you save saying you have “bad minutes” unable to save this is caused by:

Nano defaults to wordwrap over SSH, so long lines are split apart using line breaks. As a result, the cron job was split into two lines.

To get around this you need to enlarge the window you are writing in so that the command fits on one line
