Question:

I installed AcyMailing on my server, and I want to set up a cron job to trigger AcyMailing's cron job script. What should I do to set up the cron job?

  3. In field "URL to call", paste the URL you copied. e.g. http://www.example.com/index.php?option=com_acymailing&ctrl=cron (replace www.example.com with your install location). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy (for AcyMailing, we recommend to have the cron job run "every 15 minutes"). Checkout below screenshot:
