Question:

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

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. Set "Cronjob Settings" at:

  3. In field "URL to call", paste the URL you copied. e.g. http://www.example.com/index.php?option=com_easysocial&cron=true&phrase=xxxxxx (replace www.example.com with your install location). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy. Checkout below screenshot:
