I read this post explaining the details of the System->Cron settings in the Magento admin section, but I am still not clear on how the settings all affect the execution of my cron job.
I my system cron tab is set to execute cron.php every 5 minutes:
*/5 * * * * php -f /mysite/cron.php
I configured a job within a custom module's config.xml file to run one time per day:
<schedule> <cron_expr>30 10 * * *</cron_expr> </schedule>
And my admin settings are:
The cron job I am interested in runs first at 17:30 and then again at 17:35.
The record of this job in
It looks like the problem is that
Generate Schedules Every runs twice within the
Schedule Ahead for time frame and sets the job twice, but the descriptions I have read on the admin settings led to to think that having
Schedule Ahead for be a greater time frame than
Generate Schedules Every was desirable.
What do I need to change in my admin settings?
