JPrc Cronjobs

February 27th, 2013

JPrc CronjobsJPrc Cron is a Joomla package (a component and a plugin) for Cron Jobs Management and Scheduling.

Its purpose is to simulate cron jobs through Joomla front end interface at preset periods of time for users who either don’t have access to the server crontab/cPanel or don’t want to use it for any purpose.

It is launched at the preset time only if your site gets visits in place. Each time a user or spider accesses your public site you will have the cron running. Eg if you set 3:00am, it might run 3:10am (according your site traffic).

If you need a solution to run, even if there’s no visit, you need a server side solution to run within regular and fixed periods of time.
