Question:

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

Answer:

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

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, add 4 cron jobs one by one. Firstly, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. In field "URL to call", enter following URLs respectively for each cron job:
    http://www.example.com/cron/email_notification (set cron job to run 0 23 * * *)
    http://www.example.com/cron/dailyupdate_notifications (set cron job to run */15 * * * *)
    http://www.example.com/cron/dailyUpdateMail (set cron job to run */15 * * * *)
    http://www.example.com/cron/weeklyusagedetails (set cron job to run */30 * * * *)
    (replace www.example.com with your install location). Checkout below screenshot:
