In shared hosting (using cPanel), you can setup your cron in Advanced section -> Cron Jobs

In Common Settings field, select once every five minutes in the dropdown.

In Command, put the following action (if your Magento root is public_html)

/bin/sh /home/sportsdi/public_html/cron.sh

Add that cron job and your cron should be up and running.

  • And if the shared hosting cPanel setup denies running shell scripts from cron for security reasons, then run cron.php instead. Commented Jul 17, 2015 at 3:35
