Pursuant to a related topic: is there a tutorial anywhere that explains the nitty gritty details of setting up a cron job on Windows? I’ve seen this in threads:
php-cli -q /home/puckettpublishing/public_html/phplist/admin/index.php -pprocessqueue -c/home/puckettpublishing/public_html/phplist/config/config.php >/dev/null
This is done via cpanel? I confess I am a bit unclear on the entities involved. There’s “scheduled task” in Windows. “cpanel” is what I access on the host site (in my case, HostGator), is it not? The example above was from a forum listing that had the job every 15 minutes every day. I only send out my list once a week, so that seems excessive.
I am only grasping at straws here, but I’m supposing the sequence of events would be:
- Use phplist admin to Create/Send a Message
- I then (in browser world, anyway), select the list to which I want to send; not sure how one would do that in this scenario
- Then I suppose the “eternal” cron job would see the non-empty queue and start processing (until the queue is empty)
So my question is:
How far off the mark am I? What did I miss? What did I get wrong? (Everything is an acceptable answer ) If this is how this is done, how does one specify which list to use?
Appreciate any illumination anyone can shed on my ignorance.
