Setting up a cronjob at hosteurope
This Document shows one way to set up a cronjob at hosteurope. There may be other ways, this one works.
1. Grab your FTP-Account
Be sure that FTP works as expected and you can connect to your installed drupal-site via an ftp-client (like cyberduck, filezilla or some other, terminal-ftp will do it, too). Connect to your drupal-site, navigate to /scripts and open file
cron-lynx.sh for editing. In cyberduck just doubleclick the file, an appropriate editor should launch. Other ftp-clients will need you to download
cron-lynx.sh to your desktop.
You should see something like this:
/usr/bin/lynx -source http://example.com/cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1
The first line is for the operating-system to tell it that this file will be interpreted by shell. Just leave it. The next line is the standard-drupal suggestion for lynx-based cronjobs. Comment this line out by putting a
# sign in front of it (or simply delete it) and write this:
lynx -dump http://[your-website-url]/cron.php?cron_key=[your-cron-key] > /dev/null
