My catalog rules are being reset and I know that this is a cron problem.

Here is what my cron config looks like on my Cpanel: enter image description here

What is wrong with this? Do I need to do something else to get cron to work?

The server is a dedicated one.


Try to set it up like this

Replace "username" with your own username

enter image description here

This should set the cron to run every 5 minutes

  • Did it like this. I put my email there to receive notifications, but no notifications are coming. – Klevis Miho Jan 14 '15 at 13:21

Just trying to help. But I also had the same problem My command look more like "/opt/php53/bin/php /home/username/public_html/cron.php". I am with hostgator and it shows that when I am on different PHP version (in my case 5.3), I would have to write it like that. Maybe do a quick search about Cron on your hosting company website support and it might just help. Good Luck

  • It's also true about the username - it has to be your cpanel username. Also if your website is in a subfolder, you need to specify the folder after public_html/ – James Tsai Jan 14 '15 at 13:55
  • I have it like my username. – Klevis Miho Jan 14 '15 at 14:14
