In case you experience any difficulties with the suggested setup above or your cron does not work the wget might be missing on your account or hosting server. As an alternative you may use curl or lynx to access your cron file. Try one of the following commands:

 

lynx http://www.yoursite.com/ow_cron/run.php

curl http://www.yoursite.com/ow_cron/run.php

 

If both the curl and lynx are not available on your host you may execute the cron using the php binary. To apple this method change the command to:

 

/usr/bin/php /home/username/public_html/ow_cron/run.php

 

Be advised that you should make sure that this is the correct path to your php binary and apply the correct path to your Oxwall cron file.
