Setup a CRON job in cPanel

If you’d like to run a script on your website at specified intervals, you can just setup a CRON job and it will run your script automatically at that time. Here’s how you set it up:

  1. Login to your cPanel

  2. Scroll down to Advancedsection
  3. Click on “CRON jobs”
  4. Set the time interval for which you’d like to run your CRON job
    Note: Cron jobs with frequency of less than 15mins will default to 15mins to prevent crons from using up precious server resources
  5. Enter the command to eun your script:
    For example, to run a PHP script at an interval, set the command as: php /home/username/public_html/cron.php(where cron.php is your PHP file)
