Question:

I installed Redmine on my server, and I want to set up a cron job to trigger Redmine's cron job script. What should I do to set up the cron job?

Answer:

Our webcron service is best for triggering Redmine's cron job script. Just follow below simple steps to configure cron job for your Redmine:

  1. Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
  2. In field "URL to call", enter http://www.example.com/redmine/sys/fetch_changesets?key=APIKEY(cron job run "every 15 minutes") (replace www.example.com with your install location and replace key with your APIKEY). Checkout below screenshot:

  3. If necessary, finish the other optional settings.
  4. Click "Create Cron Job" button. You're done! WorkCron will trigger your Redmine's cron job script dutifully according to your time setting.
  5. If you haven't registered your WorkCron account yet, click on the "add a password" link on the top to add an email and password to your account.
