Whats a "cron job"?

Hello, i have no idea what a cron job is.

It says:

4) Setup your cron job in your server admin or email your host if you do not have access to run cron_update_bestsellers.php at say 2am every day.

 

Here is what cron mine looks like:

/usr/bin/php /home/public_html/cron_update_bestsellers.php

 

You will just need to change the /home/public_html/ part to match your server and catalog directory. (Hint try looking in Admin -> Tools -> Server Info look for the variable ' DOCUMENT_ROOT ' that should be the path you need + your catalog directory.)

Can anyone tell me what I actually need to modify? :huh:

Your host has to have cron instaled in order to use it. If your host doesn't, you could ask if they will install it. If not, you are out of luck, short of changing hosts.
