Question:

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

Answer:

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

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. In field "URL to call", enter http://www.example.com/path/to/magento/cron.php (replace www.example.com/path/to/magento with your install location). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy (for Magento, we recommend to have the cron job run "every 15 minutes"). Checkout below screenshot:

  3. If necessary, finish the other optional settings.
  4. Click "Create Cron Job" button. You're done! EasyCron will trigger your Magento'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.
