Thread: Cron Jobs for Xml import

    Cron Jobs for Xml import

    Hi there...

    Now i run the Xml feeds from cron with the command below. I have cpanel.

    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    Every feed that is enabled at Admin Panel>XML Import/Export>Manage Feeds start to run.


    How can i run different feeds with commands at cron jobs?

    I want a command at cron jobs to run a specific feed.

    Hello,

    First, you need to ask your hosting what is the correct command for using parameters in the cron job

    and then change the path to import file like:

    /home/mydomain/public_html/plugins/xmlFeeds/import.php?feed=YOUR_FEED_KEY

    i have run this command and cron sent me notification that "could not open input file" /home/mydomain/public_html/plugins/xmlFeeds/import.php?feed=YOUR_FEED_KEY

    You should ask your hosting what is the correct command to pass parameters in the command line, ex: php -q /path/to/xml/cron/import.php?feed=YOUR_FEED_KEY

    and instead of YOUR_FEED_KEY you should insert your feed key

    Any command that hosting tell me to try did not work. the path with all commands was

    /home/mydomain/public_html/plugins/xmlFeeds/import.php?feed=YOUR_FEED_KEY

    mydomain= my domain and YOUR_FEED_KEY= a key of a feed that i select and be enabled at admin panel.

    commands of hosting that i try was
    php -q
    /usr/bin/php -q
    /opt/cpanel/ea-php72/root/usr/bin/php -q

    and cron do not notify me at email. Also i see at terminal to start the process but after one second not appear.

    After hours cron sent me email and said

    No input file specified.

    Maybe script want something else to run?

    Probably, these commands also don't support parameters
