CRON Setup


I have this as a task in plesk and it does not seem to be loading the script correctly, if I load the script via browser it adds data into the db, if I load it into the cron it does not add the data to the db.

wget -O /dev/null

Can I not use 'get data' in the cron?

I think this issue related to the permission. The user run the cron need to be member of the Apache group -often "www-data" or "apache2"-.

Okay, it was working before I added the '&from=1&to=100' to the query, can you see any reason why that would break it?

OK. Try to put the URL in quotes:
wget -O /dev/null ''
