    Default How to set up cron jobs in Magento?

    All Magento seniors agree that cron jobs do help them extensively in terms of time and resource savings. As a beginner, you are fortified to enhance your ability to set up and run your first cron job following our tips shared below. Note that cron only works if the server which your Magento hosts is already setup for cronjobs.

    There are two options to setup cron jobs for a Magento server:

    1. Use cPanel to setup cronjobs

    Log onto cPanel, move to Cron jobs:

Size:  28.2 KB
    Select the parameters to set up a new Cron Job:

    Name:  img-2.jpg
Views: 61
Size:  32.3 KB

    You are able to either choose quick setup in the Common Settings or select individual options for Minute, Hour, Day, Month and Weekday.Note that:

    Minute: how frequency in minutes per running time? Or at which minute of the hour it runs?

    Hour: how frequency in hours per running time? Or at which hour?

    Day: how frequency in days per running time? Or on which days of the month?

    Month: how frequency in months per running time? Or in which months of the year ?

    Weekday: On which days of the week?

    Command: php -f /absolute_path_of_your_magento_root_folder/cron.php

    Eg.php -f /home/abc/public_html/cron.php

    After you have selected the options, click “Add New Cron Job”

    2. Use ssh to setup Cron jobs:

    You should know that Magento runs cron jobs even if you don't have a daily cron job configured. Whenever Magento receives a request, it checks if there are any cron jobs to be run. Therefore, having the daily cron job would only make sense if you had no requests for an entire day.

    One of the major advantages to using a cron job is the easiness of coding and setting it up to run. It's nothing different than a standard command-line that is fired-off periodically by the system.

    Today we would like to explain how to configure Magento cron job correctly. The configuration process can vary a bit depending on your site’s control panel (cPanel, Plesk, etc).
