Mailwizz set up - How do I add a cron job

Posted October 19, 2020 109 views

Hi to anyone who can help. I’ve set up mailwizz recently and I need to add their cron job commands. Here is the list.

I have absolutely no idea what software I’m supposed to use to add these cron jobs but Digital Oceans console keeps rejecting my password when I try to login. I’ve reset passwords, still says login failed.

How would I use Terminal for example on a Mac or am I barking up the wrong tree?

I’m getting about 50 junk emails a day now saying cron job failure so any help would really be appreciated.

Thank you,
Daniel

Hi there @turnandshoot,

What you would need to do is first SSH to your Droplet and then run using the crontab -e command to open the Cron job manager:

  • crontab -e

This would in a default text editor like nano or vim and you can paste in the cron jobs from the link that you’ve provided and adjusted the paths to your website files.

Finally, save that and exit.
