Cron Jobs => Total Beginners Guide
  • Hi everyone, I've been looking through the discussion boards for help with Chron Jobs. As you can see by my spelling error, I have no idea what these are! Ben has pointed out all of the places where you're prompted to set up a cron job, and these are super clear within Sendy. However, my issue is that I had no idea what to do with the command!. So, I started searching on the forum, but couldn't see a beginners guide.

    In the end I searched for cron jobs on my hosting provider, which is Siteground. They have a short guide, but it was enough to point me in the right direction. (

    So, if you're totally confused by where to put the command php /home/***/public_html/sendy/scheduled.php > /dev/null 2>&1

    1. Step 1 is to search for how to create a cron job on # with # being the name of your hosting provider
    2. Step 2 is to read those instructions and find the place in your control panel to create cron jobs
    3. Step 3 is to insert the command/time interval that appears in the cron job help boxes that are in the relevant places in Sendy

    Just wanted to share in case it was helpful for someone else.
