Thread: Cron Jobs setup

  1. #1

    Cron Jobs setup

    In this short manual we’ll guide you through configuring cron in cPanel hosting. If your hosting account doesn't have cPanel you can configure it using ssh, which supposes you have required skills otherwise we recommend contacting your hosting helpdesk. You need it for execution different tasks like sending notifications about expired ads, removal of temporary data and other tasks. Cron sends notifications to the Administrator with reports of tasks implemented.

    1. Log into cPanel;
    2. Find and open Cron Jobs Manager:
    3. Check what is your document root path, which is necessary for setting a correct cron task. You can do it by checking the system info (Admin Panel > System Info).


    Add cron/index.php to the end of the DOCUMENT_ROOT line; you’ll get something like:


    This is a server path to the cron file that needs to be run.

    4. Select an interval to run the cron file; we recommend setting daily midnight.

    5. Enter a command to run the cron file:

    php /home/website/public_html/cron/index.php

    In some cases you have to give an exact path to PHP in the system:


    It may be different in your system; so if you have any problems getting the right path to PHP contact your hosting helpdesk.

    You may enter your email to receive server notifications to make sure it runs properly. To disable cPanel cron notifications you have to replace your email with your account username. Emails may be helpful if you're not sure about a server path or a path to the PHP file, once cron is up and running you can disable cPanel cron notifications.

    Flynax cron file also sends email reports about tasks done, for example how many listings expired, data removed etc.

    I was getting this error when setting the cron job:

    (via ssh) -> PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function url() on a non-object in /var/www/vhosts/domain_name.com/httpdocs/cron/index.php on line 297

    I opened this file ...cron/index.php and changed this code:

    PHP Code:
    Only registered members can view the code
    for this one:

    PHP Code:
    Only registered members can view the code

    After that, it started to work!

    Cron is not configured or has not been run yet, you can find instructions here

    I've changed but still there is an error in admin

    $update_link = $details_link = RL_URL_HOME;
    $details_link .= $reefless -> url('listing', $listing);

    and this

    global $rlDb, $rlActions, $rlSmarty, $rlCategories, $rlListings, $config, $pages, $statistics, $reefless;

    Hello, I was trying to set up a cron job for the first time and am running into the issue. It reposrts the following:
    <b>Parse error</b>: syntax error, unexpected '&', expecting T_VARIABLE or '$' in <b>/homepages/42/d557186969/htdocs/includes/classes/reefless.class.php</b> on line <b>806</b><br />
    If I -just to test it- change the source code it goes over it and halts at the next obstacle:
    <b>Parse error</b>: syntax error, unexpected '=', expecting ')' in <b>/homepages/42/d557186969/htdocs/includes/classes/reefless.class.php</b> on line <b>1005</b><br />
    I did not try any further.

    The install I have is a new 4.4 installation after having had troubles with the upgraded 4.3 -> 4.4 site.
    I have however imported the old database.
    Any ideas?

    From my hosting hepldesk received this : To create a cron job you should first specify which cron file should be used for this purpose as I currently see 2 files:


    Further more you should note that when setting up a cron job the time for executing such action should not be less than 30 minutes.
    How to configured cron jobs?

    I am setting up the Escort Agency, but there goes something wrong in the cronjob. I get a error mail with this:

    PHP Warning: session_start(): open(/var/lib/php5/sessions/sess_hp5adsblhve7l9ae5qk5c87r26, O_RDWR) failed: Read-only file system (30) in /storage/web/public/sites/www.xxxxxxx.nl/includes/control.inc.php on line 32

    The xxxxxxx is my domain name

    How to resolve this problem?
