I installed SocialEngine on my server, and I want to set up a cron job to trigger SocialEngine's cron job script. What should I do to set up the cron job?
Our webcron service is best for triggering SocialEngine's cron job script. Just follow below simple steps to configure cron job for your SocialEngine:
- Open your cron job dashboard, click on " Cron Job" button.
- In field "URL to call", fill the "URL to call" field. e.g. http://www.example.com/utility/tasks?key=YOUR_ACCESS_KEY (replace www.example.com with your install location and replace key with your YOUR_ACCESS_KEY). Choose an appropriate cron job execution frequency. Checkout below screenshot:

- Click "Create Cron Job" button. You're done! WorkCron will trigger your SocialEngine's cron job script dutifully according to your time setting.
- 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.
