ee cron create

Adds a cron job to run a command at specific interval etc.

OPTIONS

[<site-name>]
: Name of site to run cron on.

--command=<command>
: Command to schedule.

--schedule=<schedule>
: Time to schedule. Format is same as Linux cron.

[--user=<user>]
: User to execute command as.

We also have helper to easily specify scheduling format:

Entry Description Equivalent To
@yearly (or @annually) Run once a year, midnight, Jan. 1st 0 0 1 1 *
@monthly Run once a month, midnight, first of month 0 0 1
@weekly Run once a week, midnight between Sat/Sun 0 0 0
@daily (or @midnight) Run once a day, midnight 0 0 *
@hourly Run once an hour, beginning of hour 0

You may also schedule a job to execute at fixed intervals, starting at the time it's added or cron is run. This is supported by following format:

  • @every <duration>

Where duration can be combination of:
<number>h - hour
<number>m - minute
<number>s - second

So 1h10m2s is also a valid duration
