How do I use cronrss.php with FeedRss??
« on: September 28, 2007, 07:04:27 am »
Hey guys, I love the Feed RSS mod!  Two issues though, first, there are no buttons or links back to the feedsadmin page once you leave it!!  There IS white space now (line break) between Server Settings and Current Theme under the Configuration tab, was this where it was supposed to go??

Second, how do I use the cronrss.php file??  My host allows me to setup cronjobs but I have no clue how to use this file or set it up?

Thanks,
LUSKISM

Usually, you can use PuTTy to SSH into your account. Then you can execute the command "crontab -e"

31 * * * * /usr/local/bin/php /home/midessa/public_html/forum/cronrss.php > /dev/null 2>&1
46 * * * * /usr/local/bin/php /home/midessa/public_html/forum/cronrss.php > /dev/null 2>&1
01 * * * * /usr/local/bin/php /home/midessa/public_html/forum/cronrss.php > /dev/null 2>&1


Basically, you define the path to where php is, then define the path to where cronrss.php is located.

Pay special attention to the "Fields" section because it defines the times and dates when crontab.php should run. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crontab

Google "crontab" for further help.

Of course, I'm hosting with Linux,.. I don't know what you would do if you're hosting with Windows.

Is this in regards to the RSS Feed poster mod?  I can't seem to get mine to work.  Is it necessary to use Putty and SSH...to get this thing to work?
