Mautic v2.15.3 running on PHP 7.2 on a
Debian 10 AWS EC2 using SES for email sending.
I recently migrated a Mautic instance and have some doubts over which Crons are absolutely needed and which can be avoided or scheduled with lesser frequency. I also found the previous cPanel had crons setup without any clue (after watching YouTube video) so I was scrutinizing them and seek your opinion.
I’m an experienced SysAdmin (not a developer) and I have already read through the help page thoroughly https://www.mautic.org/docs/en/setup/cron_jobs.html
Here are the ones I guess essentials:
If using AWS SNS topics to fetch bounces, I guess I don’t need ?
… this is something else I guess where data is pushed to web hooks and not pulled ? Correct me if I’m wrong
Email is queued and sent through SES SMTP and not the local MTA so do I still need this “Queued Delivery” cron ? I will very soon switch to send thru SES API as soon as it is production ready in Mautic.
What does it do ? Is it sending data out to a webhook or fetching in data through a webhook ? Where can I check what webhooks are configured / attached ?
- no commands defined, gives a bunch of options when I try through CLI. This was just there in the previous cPanel but I can’t see it mentioned anywhere in docs/reference/forums.
Can’t really understand the docs, anyone who can explain a bit more in details please ?
(this stopped working for everyone on Dec 30, 2019)
- fails to download. I went to MaxMind site and it seems they phased out downloading directly. you need to signup, get a lic. Key and setup update mechanism. Ref.
I can set it up with Lic. Key and Auth as they suggest… but I want to know if this is even used or needed in general ? I can ask the end-client if something specific to it.
