How do I set up a Cron task?

The cron functionality can be triggered in two ways, by clicking throughout the component, or by setting up a cron task as explained below.

After you have successfully installed and configured the RSTickets!Pro Cron plugin, next step will be by creating a cron task.

Setting up a cron task can depend on your hosting provider. Bellow you will find the most common settings (if these do not work for you, contact the hosting provider for more details).

Log in to your server hosting administrator panel and add a new cron job with one of the following commands:

lynx "http://yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_rsticketspro&task=cron"

wget -O /dev/null "http://yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_rsticketspro&task=cron"

Important:

We recommend setting up the cron triggering cycle based on the number of tickets. Taking this into consideration, once every 5 minutes should suffice.
