In this tutorial, we will focus on Setting Up CRON on cPanel in order to get WP Video Robot to run automatically.
If you do not want to configure anything, we have created a start/stop solution called WPVR Autopilot that automatically configures the automation of WP Video Robot.
Once this done, you need to copy the “Crontab line to add (via URL)” string starting from the wget word.
In our screenshot example, it would be:
wget -q -O /dev/null http://backend.wpvideorobot.com/automation/cc35604bf997383a994973ff25620706/
4/ Fill the form like shown below. It is very import that you schedule the cron each 10 minutes of every hour of every day.
WP Video Robot is designed to work each 10 minutes. If you put some other config, it won’t work.
5/ That’s it, you’re done !
Now let’s check if the WPVR automation is working properly. After the first ten minutes, if you visit the WPVR Dashboard > Automation Stats page, you should have a “CRON is working!” message. If not, then you have probably did something wrong on the past steps.
You can also check the WPVR > Activity Logs page to see if the automation is working properly.
Happy Video Importing!
