Ok now I'm REALLY confused because I HAVE cron running and it seems to do what it's supposed to do and with no apparent errors BUT exactly what is it supposed to be doing?????? I am using nncron so I keep seeing glimpses of a dos box opening and closing every minute so therefore nncron is doing what it's supposed to do. I can only assume that cron would refresh everything? If so then it's not doing absolutely anything to my site? I have been sat on one page waiting for the minutes to update but nothing seems to update? I test it by writing a comment then sitting on the page but it doesn't refresh and I am told that the comment was written "just under a minute ago" albeit ten minutes have passed? If anybody else is using nncron successfully then can they tell me if this is correct? Here is my nncron.tab #CRONTAB FILE # Classic crontab format: # Minutes Hours Days Months WeekDays Years Command # see 'example.tab'
#( purge-cron-log Time: 0 12 * * 5 * Action: PURGE-OLD: "log\*.log" 7 )# #( Run_a_phpRule: FILE-EXIST: "C:\xampp\htdocs\Mysite\ow_cron\run.php" Action: START-APP: C:\program.exe C:\xampp\htdocs\Mysite\ow_cron\run.php BEGIN59000 PAUSE AGAIN )#
I am not sure i don't have Facebook but it will not dynamically change the time using ajax or anything it would update if you navigated to another page and back or just hit refresh. Technically it is updating all the time as time goes by but to see it you would need to reload the page.
Once you have the settings you will probably need to restart nncron for it to activate/work to which you then go into the options area of nncron as described by the picture above and you will need to change only one setting in the options screen, once set to hidden click ok and you are done. Just right click on nncron to where you see options again and then click "Start Task" and you will see "run_a_php" click that and you're all finished.
