This is the first time I want to run cron for indexation every hour. I found multiple tutorials but none of them give me what I'm looking for or skip some steps.

I'm using OVH as a web hosting, Magento 2.3.

Help, please.

use this cron expression

                <schedule><cron_expr>0 * * * *</cron_expr></schedule>

Please refer to the below documentation of OVh Web hosting to set automated tasks.


Example: Add the below code in your file you have set for schedule task:

//Assuming your file is in the Magento root folder.

<?php system('<path to php> <path to root>/bin/magento indexer:reindex') ?>


    $command = 'php /path-to-magento-root-directory/bin/magento indexer:reindex';
    echo '<pre>' . shell_exec($command) . '</pre>';

Also, check the below post if it is helpful!


More, take a look at Magento documentation to Configure and run cron


Hope this helps!
