VIP Cron Jobs
Freeola VIP+ Hosting offer the ability for customers to setup cron jobs.
Cron jobs are time-based tasks that are carried out automatically by our VIP hosting servers.
The system is a scheduler which runs tasks at given times. This can be anything from scripts that need to be run every hour to monthly checks on whether there are updates for a piece of software.
VIP+ hosting allows customers to specify a schedule to run scripts from within their VIP web space.
The VIP+ Cron settings page has 5 inputs to allow a scheduled task to be setup. The fields are defined as:
Minutes (0 - 59)
Hour (0 - 23)
Day of month (1 - 31)
Month (1 - 12)
Day of week (0 - 6) (0 to 6 are Sunday to Saturday)
Other common syntax used in Cron jobs are:
* (asterisk) - Meaning 'all' or every possible setting. i.e a '*' in the minute field will tell the Cron job to run every minute.
- (hyphen) - Used for setting a range. i.e '9-17' in the hour field will tell the Cron job to run at 9 A.M and 5 P.M plus every hour in between.
, (comma) - When used a separator basically has the same meaning as 'AND'. i.e '1,7' in the month field tells the Cron job to run in January AND July.
