Question:

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

Answer:

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

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. Copy cron job URL at:

    Copy cron job URL
  3. In field "URL to call", paste the URL you copied. e.g. http://www.example.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cron.php?code=xxxxxx (replace www.example.com with your install location and replace code). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequancy (for WP-o-Matic, we recommend to have the cron job run "every hour"). Checkout below screenshot:
