I have created a schedule to run the 'Feed Me' every 1 minute using the plugin 'Schedule', but it doesn't work. I not sure am I using the correct setting or not. I manage to get the latest data if I manually click the 'Run Feed'.

This is my setting for 'Schedule' This is my settings

This is my timer This is my timer

    Hi @Lee, I take it you've set up the cron job?

  • @dmatthams You mean this step 4 '* * * * * php /path/to/craft schedules/run 1>> /dev/null 2>&1' ? I don't have idea what is the refer to. I keep getting the error 'The system cannot find the path specified'. I'm using windows.

  • The path is the path to where you installed craft on your server – your host might be able to help with this?

  • I tried to run at my localhost using XAMPP. I think the command line is different? If I run with craft schedules/run, I can see the full list of the job. This line ' 1>> /dev/null 2>&1' doesn't work at Window.

  • This isn't normally something you'd run on a local environment. You'd set it up on your sever to repeat a task, most web hosts will have guides on how to setup a cron job.

Guessing you didn't do step #4 in the readme? https://github.com/panlatent/schedule/blob/master/README.md

  1. Add a record to system crontab:
* * * * * php /path/to/craft schedules/run 1>> /dev/null 2>&1
  • What is the /path/to/ ? I'm new to this cron job, not sure what is the path/to refer to. I had tried for a few, but it return 'The system cannot find the path specified'. I'm using a window.

  • That's the full path to the craft executable at the root of your project.
