Running Cron

CLI Container

Crontab file Explained

A crontab file has six fields for specifying minute, hour, day of month, month, day of week, and the command to be run at that interval. See below:

*     *     *     *     *  command to be executed
-     -     -     -     -

Configuring Cron

Cron can be started within a project by creating a crontab file within the projects .docksal/services/cli folder. Once that file has been created or modified, the cli container should be restarted by running fin restart cli.
