Web Schedules / Scheduled Tasks
Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 11 January 2007 04:12 AM

Web Schedules give you the ability to easily schedule a recurring task to execute (run), on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule, a local script or web page. Using the Crontabs, to use a *nix term, you can specify exact times you would like the script to be run.

 

To Enable a Web Schedule:


  1. Login to your 'Account Center' 
  2. Click the green 'Control Panel' button
  3. Click on hosting plan
  4. Click 'Scheduled Tasks'
  5. Click 'Add Scheduled Task'
  6. Enter a Name for Task
  7. Choose a Task Option
    1. 'Check Website Availability'
    2. 'Backup'
    3. 'Backup Database'
  8. Select Time, Priority, Execution
  9. Click 'Save' 

 

Notes:

  1. We are suggesting that all users use this new feature instead of requesting a Windows scheduled task, Cold Fusion scheduled task or a MS SQL 2000/2005 Job.
  2. Your initial start time should be more than 15 minutes in the future.
  3. Do not schedule a task to launch more than 1x per 15 minutes. Violators will be asked to remove their task.
  4. See the on-screen Quick Help Feature for advanced setup parameters. There are many otpions you can set.
  5. Web Schedules cannot execute (run) a script that is password protected.
  6. Scirpts to be executed should be local scripts.
