Setting up cron job for Joom Social

Torbjorn Zetterlund ThunderBear

On most Linux system, you can simply run the command below as often as you are comfortable. We would recommend to run it every 30 minutes of less. On a busy site, you might want to run it every 10 minutes. The more frequent you run it, the less load it will be on the server.

lynx source “”>/dev/null

lynx is a text based browser that is installed in most hosting environments. If you do not have lynx installed, you can use other alternatives such as wget as below,

wget -O /dev/null "" > /dev/null

Don’t worry, this operation actually run very fast and has very little impact on the server, equivalent to a normal single page load.

Or you can setup to run php command as a cron as below.
php -q /var/www/vhosts/

To set this up in crontab, type crontab -e and add you new  entries add the end of the file. Save and you crontab is up to date.
