Cron job not working, some setting?

Recommended Posts

my friend create an import.php file for importing my csv file, I create a cron job:

10 * * * * /usr/bin/php http://mywebsite.com/import.php

 

but it's never working.

 

I tried run the script with web browser like this : http://mywebsite.com/import.php,

then it can import all my products into the shop.

 

why the cron job not working?

 

do I need set the permission somewhere in the oscomerce directory?

Try using the absolute path to the PHP script in the crontab file, not your internet URL

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

Either you have the path wrong or your host doesn't allow CRON jobs.

I did tested a simple php cron job(sending a email from server), it's working perfectly, and it's in the same location with import.php, but import.php just not working.

I got this error message:

 

<b>Parse error</b>: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in <b>/homepages/55/d841766807/htdocs/all/catalog /Import.php</b> on line <b>32</b><br />

Well you can:

 

1. Fix it yourself.

 

2. Have your friend fix it.

 

3. Post the code so someone here can offer suggestions. We can't fix what we can't see...
