Re: aks_cron: Cron inside Textpattern

Please, may you explain how the plugin should work? Does it rely on system cron? If I try to schedule something, it appears to do just… nothing at all…
Thanks.

No it doesn’t use background processes nor an external cron application. The plugin’s name is bit misleading. It doesn’t actually do scheduled tasks so to speak, but it runs on-demand when the site is accessed. It runs any queued scheduled task on the next time Textpattern is visited or executed otherwise starting from when any task was scheduled for. If your website isn’t accessed for a week, then no tasks will be run for a week.

If you do need real scheduled tasks that run based on time and not by demand, then this plugin isn’t really it. You can however (technically) use the plugin to manage (create and edit) various jobs that are then run with an external scheduler by pinging the website.
