Currently, custom crontab files are only supported within the
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 - - - - - | | | | | | | | | +----- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday=0) | | | +------- month (1 - 12) | | +--------- day of month (1 - 31) | +----------- hour (0 - 23) +------------- min (0 - 59)
By default, cron runs commands through
/bin/sh and can sometimes cause issues when trying to run commands that are
found within the
$PATH. One recommendation is to wrap the commands in
bash -l -c so that the profile can load. An
example of this would be using drush to run cron on a drupal website.
* * * * * bash -l -c 'drush --root=/var/www/docroot core:cron'
Cron can be started within a project by creating a
crontab file within the projects
Once that file has been created or modified, the
cli container should be restarted by running
fin restart cli.
