What are Cron Jobs?

A cron job is a Linux command for scheduling a task to be executed sometime in the future. This is normally used to schedule a job that is executed periodically - for example, to send out a notice every morning.

What you need to know:

To setup a cron job, go to cPanel, click Cron jobs, choose Standard.

You MAY NOT run a cron job more often than every 15 minutes.

If you are getting errors when using the get command, please contact us and request access.
