Question:

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

Answer:

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

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. In field "URL to call", enter http://www.example.com/update (replace www.example.com with your install location). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy (for selfoss, we recommend to have the cron job run "every 10 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 selfoss' 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.
