Cron job on Mautic/Bitnami/Digital Ocean

First of all, thanks to all for a good job at putting Mautic out there!

I installed Mautic last week through Bitnami/Digital Ocean. The advantage is that I had it up and running in no time, but now I find myself without SSH access, but that’s not the question here.

My question is: I have the feeling the cron jobs are not running as my lead lists are not filling up. How can I see whether the cron jobs actually work as advertised (https://wiki.bitnami.com/Applications/Bitnami_Mautic)? And how can I manually edit them (instructions on the linked wiki don’t work)?

Ok, found the solution. Turns out that the Bitnami installation doesn’t actually set up the cron jobs and you have to do that by hand, logging in through SSH.

JeroenJeremy, how did you set up the cron jobs on Bitnami?

I’ve SSH’d into my Bitnami deployment of Mautic and I’ve run the social networking cron (documented at the github snippet below)

But how do I ensure that all the other crons are running? Where’s the list of all of Mautic’s necessary crons?

Nevermind… found all the info I needed here:
