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


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

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. In field "URL to call", enter (replace with your install location). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequency (for Elgg, we recommend to have the cron job run "each day"). Checkout below screenshot:

  3. If necessary, finish the other optional settings.
  4. Click "Create Cron Job" button. You're done! EasyCron will trigger your Elgg's cron job script dutifully according to your time setting.
  5. If you haven't registered your EasyCron account yet, click on the "add a password" link on the top to add an email and password to your account.
