I was finally able to get my cron jobs running in Drupal 5.7 (I previously had them working in Drupal 5.2), but when I upgraded they stopped working. I previously had cron run the lynx script, but that now doesn’t appear to work. I tried pretty much everything.

Then I did a search of blogs and found Jeff Briar-Hills’ blog and it produced the elusive answer. What you need to do is put the following in the cron job which can be found within the cPanel menu:

45 * * * * wget -O – http://www.rorymcpherson.com/drupal/cron.php

I have put this here to remind me during future updates.

Please note that I am using SiteGround for web hosting.

You may have noticed the theming of this site has been changing nearly every day. That is because I am trying to find a good theme for my blog. Leave a comment if you have a preference.

This theme is called ‘Garamond’, the previous one is called ‘Glossy Blue’ and I will probably try customising a theme called ‘Garland’.

I know that some of you (those who don’t like change 🙂 prefer a theme called ‘Slash’ – I may make it possible for you to select a theme once you have logged in – then of course you have to log in. However I feel that ‘Slash’ is a little old fashioned.
