How to setup a CRON job

In some occasions, it's necessary to setup a CRON job, in order to continue with one of our plugins. There could be a few reasons why this is needed:

  • Update products stuck/very slow
  • Products import stuck/very slow
  • Lots of items in the action scheduler

If a website doesn’t regularly get visits, the background processes don’t run often enough. A solution for this issue is to set up a CRON job to access the website.

We recommend the CRON to access the site every 3 minutes using the fallowing permalink as example:
http://{domain.example}/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=true

A CRON command example will look like this: 

wget -q -O – http://{domain.example}/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=true >/dev/null 2>&1

Your hosting provider can help with this, if you don't know how to set this up.
