Question:

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

Answer:

As recommended by Sendy officially at here, you may use EasyCron to trigger cron job script in Sendy.

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

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. In field "URL to call", enter http://www.example.com/scheduled.php (replace www.example.com with your install location). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy (for scheduled.php, we recommend to have the cron job run "every 5 minutes"). Checkout below screenshot:

    Set up cron job for Sendy scheduled.php
  3. If necessary, finish the other optional settings.
  4. Click "Create Cron Job" button.
  5. Add another cron job with URL http://www.example.com/autoresponders.php (replace www.example.com with your install location), and set the execution interval as "every minute":

    Set up cron job for Sendy autoresponders.php
  6. If necessary, finish the other optional settings.
  7. Click "Create Cron Job" button.
  8. You're done! EasyCron will trigger your Sendy's cron job scripts dutifully according to your time setting.
