Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    PHP CRON Job

    Hi All,

    Quick question regarding php and cron,

    here is my current path in the cron job etc:

    */5 * * * * /usr/bin/php -q /var/www/[hidden]/cron/cron_script.php |mail hidden@hidden-email.co.uk 2>&1

    The script basically queries the database and emails etc. When I visit the web page it works perfectly, but if I leave the script to be executed via cron it does nothing. I know it's working because I recieve the cron email from 'root'.

    Any ideas why it may not be working?

    I would really appreciate some advice on this,

    Thanks!!! ^_^

    Never mind, got it working. The issue was related to a path issue in my php script.
