    Hi all newbie here.

    I am trying to set up a cron job on a domain hosted on my Plesk 8.0 Virtual Server.

    It is a php script.

    I am pretty sure I am having a problem with what paths to use.

    to run the script would I use...
    /usr/bin/php ?
    php ?

    Then for the file itself what path should I use?
    I believe the whole path is...
    var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/phpfiletorun.php

    But is this too much for a cron job for a hosted domain?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    PS I also tried wget, usr/bin/wget, etc. and can't get it to do anything.

    Stll trying

    Nevermind...

    Turns out crond isn't started when the server is rebooted.

    Thus it wasn't running and wouldn't work...

    OOPs!
