Trying to setup a cron job

Recommended Posts

I am trying to setup a cron job for my website, after this tutorial:

[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]Type crontab -e
Ok now type 'i' and input something similar to: 30 * * * * /home/virtual/site/fst/var/www/html/cron.php.
Now push Escape then type :wq (it tells it to write the changes and then quit). It should say 'installing new crontab'. [/quote]



I did all of this,the message"installing new crontab" showed up but for some reason it does not work. Anyone has any ideas? Do I need to put a code in my script cron.php?

Thanks

are you trying to setup a cron job through shell access prompt? do you have access to cpanel? because it is pretty easy to do it through cpanel.
