How Do I execute a .sh script using cpanel cron job


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:


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/

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/

Adjust time as per your need.

Thanks! I missed permission. It didn’t have execute permission. Now it is working fine.
