In this tutorial, we will focus on Setting Up CRON on UNIX Servers through SSH in order to automate WP Video Robot tasks.
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.
1/. First of all, we need to toggle ON “AUTORUN Mode” and “Real Cron Service” options under WP Video Robot Options.
Once this done, you need to copy the “crontab line to add” data.
(For our example it is */10 * * * * wget -q -O /dev/null http://backend.wpvideorobot.com/automation/cc35604bf997383a994973ff25620706 )
2/. Now connect to your server through SSH with (Putty under windows or Terminal under Mac).
9/. That’s it, you’re done !
Happy Video Importing!
