==Cron.php with no activity report==

==Will create change on this page later==
Repeatly triggered /admin/cron.php on a localhost that had no activity except for the running of cron.  This localhost had several advanced features turned on including course completion.  Periodically cron.php would find assignment_cron, chat_cron, forum_cron, scrom_cron to run, which are part of the activity modules.  The rss_client would have activity periodically.  For future reference, here is a report showing no activity and nothing that needs to be done.

I will create a template at that time, put in sublinks to the new pages at the top of this page. I will reformat this page and deal with all the processes that cron deals with :) --[[User:chris collman|chris collman]] 22:58, 17 November 2011 (WST)

Revision as of 14:58, 17 November 2011

Comment from Eloy:

"If there is some template to mark one page as "require some love" I'd say https://docs.moodle.org/en/Cron requires it. It talks 99% of the time to use web-browser cron. Only 1 line talks about cli cron." --Helen Foster 20:44, 9 November 2011 (WST)

I just noticed this comment. Cron is not one of my special areas of knowledge but obviously use it. Did a quick "Cron CLI" on the web and got lost in how to program a php file to run cron jobs. Saw the note about 2.0 and CLI on this page.

I think Eloy's comment is also saying that this page is too long and could be split up? For example use a navtrail and a Cron template. Proposed pages:

  • Cron page - Overview section
  • Cron windows OS page - move section.
  • Cron MAC OS X page - move section
  • Cron on web hosting service page - move section
  • Cron linix OS page - move section

Will create change on this page later

Not hearing any immediate response to my proposals, I will wait a few days before I change things--chris collman 22:58, 17 November 2011 (WST)

I will create a template at that time, put in sublinks to the new pages at the top of this page. I will reformat this page and deal with all the processes that cron deals with :) --chris collman 22:58, 17 November 2011 (WST)
