Cron Jobs for Book Due Notifications 3 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 0  
If I want admin to receive a notice email one or two days before a book is due back the following instructions are given. You need to setup cron jobs. According to the backend directions if I wish to make a cron job do the following...

Send email to admin before Lend end.
For that you need create GRON job and connect to Cron check so URL:
'http://{yours site}/index.php?option=com_booklibrary&Itemid={Yours ItemID}&task=lend_before_end_notify' with span - every day.
Cron Jobs may look like:
'wget -q -O - localhost/~andrew/joomla_15/index.php?option=com_booklibrary&Iteid=56&task=lend_before_end_notify /dev/null'

So I set this up both commands at separate times for book item 17. Both returned an error.

1. mydomain/index.php?option=com_booklibrar...nd_before_end_notify
'2. wget -q -O - mydomain/index.php?option=com_booklibrar...nd_before_end_notify /dev/null'

I get the following error...

/bin/sh: mydomain/index.php?option=com_booklibrary: No such file or directory

Can you anyone please advise.

Hello,

I am sorry, "wget" - that comand(script, tools) for linux it exist as default(linux that default platform for web sites), for other system need check, but that multy platform tools for get any WEB content.

for use "wget" - you need cpanel and (or) bash access to yours host, or you may ask that from yours host provider. Or you may use any like "wget" tools.
Manual for "wget" - you may find in google

Thanks,
OIrdaSoft team

I have c-panel and as far as I know my book is item 8 and the backend features/pathway are set correctly...

I have set for daily execution as follows...
home/myname/websites/library/index.php?option=com_booklibrary&Itemid=8&task=lend_before_end_notify

yet I keep getting a "com_booklibrary" error.
/bin/sh: home/myname/websites/library/index.php?option=com_booklibrary: No such file or directory

What is the story with com_booklibrary failure? Tell us more about "com_booklibrary" please?

Hello,

NO,

You need add to crone set some web request to yours site URl, because that we sid need use "wget", and in yours you need replace:
"home/myname/websites/library/"

to
"Yours site"

You may first submit that url in browser

Thanks,
