    Hi There,

    Is anyone using auction2post on a site hosted thru Heart internet?

    Am having probs setting up the cron task on their scheduled CP , wonder if anyone else had this and any fixes?

    this is what they suggest to use:

    /usr/bin/php5 -f/home/sites/websiteurlhere.com/public_html/wp-content/plugins/auction2post/automate.php

    but nowt works......

    thanks in advance

    Fish

    Hi Fish, hoping I can assist, been using a2p for a while now on a number of sites.

    First off I would recommend you rename automate.php to something more secure. Next step, your cron command should be similar to this...

    Code:
    wget -q http://_yourdomain_.co.uk/wp-content/plugins/auction2post/automate.php -O /dev/null
    I am pretty sure you need to access automate.php using wget, lynx or curl (i.e. a browser fetch and not a php command) - I'm hoping to be chatting with radio later so I'll ask to confirm.

    Hope this helps, you could also post on the a2p forum. :)

    P.

    Hey paul,

    Heart don't allow the recommended scripts wget & curl, they provided a workaround (bit of a joke since it doesn't work ...) hence my post here.

    Am wondering if it's not a clash or could be sorted somewhere in htaccess ?

    Be in touch re RT soon :p

    Not a problem, you may want to check out Free cron jobs on demand just did a search and found it. Could be of use and there are no doubt more.
