How can I configure the Magento 2 cron job in Wamp Windows? For upgrade Magento 2 asking cron in Wamp localhost.
Magento 2, there are three cron jobs required. Because windows doesn’t have cron, we have to use a bat file and configure it to run as a scheduled task as shown below:
Find the location of
php.exe– In you have Wamp installed, it’s in
Go to a folder and create a file named yourcron.bat
Edit this file and paste 3 lines shown below:
in the following file I have added to cron job for re-indexing and cache
C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.6.25\php.exe C:\wamp\www\magento2\bin\magento cron:run C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.6.25\php.exe C:\wamp\www\magento2\update\cron.php C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.6.25\php.exe C:\wamp\www\magento2\bin\magento setup:cron:run C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.6.25\php.exe C:\wamp\www\magento2\bin/magento indexer:reindex C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.6.25\php.exe C:\wamp\www\magento2\bin/magento cache:flush
Save the file, open command prompt and enter following command:
schtasks /create /sc minute /mo 5 /tn Magento\Cron /tr C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.6.25\yourcron.bat
Now click on
Start –> Control Panel –> Administrative Tools –> Task Scheduler
Expand Task Schedule Library from the left hand column and click Magento.
Select Cron from the middle panel, click properties from the right pane under selected items.
Under Security Options, click the Change User or Group button.
Now in the current window, enter System username in the object name box and click check names. Click OK to close the User window, and OK to close the Cron properties Window, and close Task Scheduler.
Cron job setup is successful and it will run every 5 minutes.
Hope this will help you.
Create a cron.php file (the code you want to execute at a regular interval)
Create a CRON.BAT file, copy and past the below code in the file D:\xampp\php\php.exe D:\xampp\htdocs\Application\cron.php
The path I have written is according to my xampp and cron.php file, update the path of files according to your system directory
- To schedule a task Click on start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled Tasks
Or you can go directly to Control Panel > Scheduled Tasks
Right click in the folder New > Schedule Task
Give appropriate name to the Task. In the RUN text field… Type the complete path of the CRON.BAT file in my case it is D:\xampp\htdocs\Application\CRON.BAT
Set the schedule of the job, you can use advanced button if required.
I hope this helps.
