Hi,

I have an import product profile which is set up and ready to run - the data files are in place and if I run the profile using the admin backend it runs fine.

How can I run this profile from the command line?  This would mean I’d be able to run the profile via a cron job.

Does this involve the built-in cron functionality somehow - or would a script something like

Thanks,

Kevin Bailey

Try http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/8542/P45/
or around page 3-5 here http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/35865/P60/
And good luck!

Btw, I personally don’t like the built-in Cron. I’d recommend using “crontab -e -u apache” to make the cron job. But that does require ssh (i.e. putty.exe if you’re on windows).
