How Do I execute a .sh script using cpanel cron job
« on: October 31, 2019, 11:47:33 AM »
I am new to command line so please forgive my ignorance. I can successfully execute my script using SSH by navigating to the relevant directory and typing following command:

    bash myscript.sh

I’m now trying to set this script to run using cPanel cron job. I have tried the following but it doesn’t work:

    * * * * * /public_html/app/cron_jobs/myscript.sh

Any help would be appreciated..

First, you will have to make sure that your script has execute permissions and then set following cron:

0 * * * * /home/<your_user>/public_html/yourscript.sh

Adjust time as per your need.
