To use a cron job in OctoberCMS, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Open the Terminal/Command Prompt and navigate to the root directory of your OctoberCMS installation.
  2. Run the following command to generate the cron file: php artisan october:env This command will create a .env.october file in the root directory.
  3. Open the .env.october file and add your cron job configuration. For example, if you want to run a cron job every minute, you can add the following line: * * * * * php /path/to/your/artisan/artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1 Replace /path/to/your/artisan/artisan with the actual path to your artisan file.
  4. Save the file and rename it to .env. Drop the .october extension.
  5. Set up the cron job on your server. The exact steps will depend on your server configuration, but usually, you can do this by using the crontab -e command to edit your cron table and then adding the command you added to the .env file.
  6. Save the changes to your cron table.


Now, the cron job will run automatically at the specified interval and execute the schedule:run command in OctoberCMS, which will trigger any registered scheduled tasks defined in your application.
