Pass variables to cron'd php

software development


at my previous server I could use the following to pass a variable to a php script:
0 12 * * * php -f /home//cronjobs.php rau
(where ‘rau’ is the variable being passed)

but this doesn’t work :frowning:
Can anyone tell me how I should be doing it?

TIA :slight_smile:


I’ve never used Shell to set cron (I’m always worried about breaking it)
Why not try some remote one like
Hope this helps.


I’m happy using cron, but need someone to confirm for me how to call php files.

How are you accessing the parameter in the script?



Looks like it wasn’t working I wasn’t specifying the php interpreter. (can’t see what’s wrong with the one it finds otherwise)
