Question:

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

Answer:

Our webcron service is best for triggering CometChat's cron job script. Just follow below simple steps to configure cron job for your CometChat:

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. Copy cron job link from CometChat:

  3. In field "URL to call", paste the URL you copied. e.g. http://www.example.com/cometchat/cron.php?all=all&auth=xxxxxx&url=1 (replace www.example.com with your install location and replace auth with your auth). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy. Checkout below screenshot:
