Setting Cron Jobs with cron-job.org

Hi,

I’m new to Mautic and just installed it. I uploaded the script, installed it, setup Amazon SES… and the last thing I have to setup is the Cron Job.

Since I’m on shared hosting, I’m going to use an external cron job service to run the cron jobs. Does anyone have a step-by-step walkthough on how to do this. I spent about an hour searching through older posts with bits and pieces of information… but I don’t have the complete picture. I went on YouTube to see if anyone has setup a video on it… but there isn’t anything there for external cron jobs either.

Okay, I figured it out. I used the PHP file that someone had updated for version 2.0 and connected everything with Cron-Job.org. I had to change https to http in the crons before it worked properly… but it’s working now.

Hi Jim,

I just signed up for cron-jog.org…can give any guidance on how you set up the cron jobs on that site and any server configs you performed to get the cron jobs set up…thanks a ton.

Maybe this https://www.mautic.org/community/index.php/545-cron-job-set-up-problem/0 page will help you setup Mautic cron job with webcron.
About webcron, you can use easycron.com, a super easy-to-use free cron job service.
