How to set up a cron job on Windows

As you probably know, the easiest way to implement automatic monitoring of your services is by creating a periodic job on your system. On Linux-based machines this is quite easy, and lots of hosting panels provide web-based configuration tools. But on Windows, setting up a cron job can be a real pain. One user of PHP Server Monitor, Robert Inzano, has taken the time to put together a step by step tutorial on how to set up cronjobs on Windows. Please see attached PDF file for the complete walk-through.

Robert, thanks for your time and effort!

    Easycron.com is a job scheduler service. It works exactly like crontab in Unix / Linux except that it can call a URL instead of executing a command.

    elsewhere on here, I have just over 2,500 products, & I can’t imrpot them all in one go as I get the same error message as you do. However, when I split the file into smaller chunks, in my case 1,000 at a time works fine, then I can imrpot or update all the products without any problems. I have an Excel macro that splits the file for me.Having said this, I still can’t open the Products section of the Dashboard, which is pretty annoying!It’s interesting what silent_soft said, as I too use external URLs, as early on, this was the only way I could get it to work, although the URLs are actually on my site, if you see what I mean. I wasn’t aware of the memory implications of using this method, & wonder whether using just the file names on their own & letting WordPress work out the paths would stop this from happening.Anyway, let me know if you need any assistance in splitting the file, even just as a test.Paul Cutcliffe
