Setting Up Magento In Cron
This is an old revision of the document!
Login to cPanel for your domain, and click on the Cron jobs icon.
Click on the Standard button.
For the Command to run, enter the path to the cron.php script, which is located in the directory where Magento is installed.
For example, if Magento is installed in the root web directory, you would put the following in:
php -f /home/USERNAME/public_html/cron.php
If it is installed in a subdirectory, like store, you would do the following:
php -f /home/USERNAME/public_html/store/cron.php
Replace USERNAME with the appropriate value.
The time settings can be left alone:
Once you’ve entered the path to cron.php, click on the Save crontab button.
Now the cron script will run daily at 3 AM.
