My lockdown screen does not include the digest options as shown in the tutorial graphic.

This is what I see on mine:

What am I missing?  I have the cron job (cron_bridge.php) running if that matters.

Thanks…

Hi,

It looks like you've not yet set up the system scheduler (Cron). Scheduler-related features won't show up until you do.

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Hi,

Here's what I'm seeing in my host's cpanel:

Domain-specific example:

 /usr/local/bin/ea-php99 /home/hhsnet/domain_path/path/to/cron/script

In the above example, replace “ea-php99” with the PHP version assigned to the domain you wish to use. Look in the MultiPHP Manager for the actual PHP version assigned to a domain.


Based on that I have this command set up for running every minute:

/usr/local/bin/ea-php71  /home/hhsnet/public_html/data/cron_bridge.php

So that looks to be the correct setup.

Hmm, that does look right to me.

I just checked and actually there is a config option that's off. Sorry, forgot about that. You can find by searching the Admin Zone for "notification_enable_digests".

If it is Cron, to identify if Cron being wrong though, you can check it, run this in Commandr…

Code

:echo get_value('last_cron');
It will give you a unix timestamp (a number) that says when Cron last run.
This site will allow converting the number to a date:
Epoch Converter - Unix Timestamp Converter

Composr will consider Cron running if it has run within the last 5 hours.

That was it.  All the digests show up now.

Thanks!  That technique worked very well for giving me the confidence that the cron job was running properly.

I very much appreciate your prompt and helpful responses to my "onion peeling" questions.
