Cronjob/Scheduled Tasks

In order for some phpVMS features to work, a cronjob is required to be setup.

Some of the features that rely on cronjobs include:

  • Finances
  • vaCentral features
  • Mass Emailing
  • Backups

Setup

You need the path to the artisan file that's in the root of the phpVMS install. Then, add a cronjob, that runs once a minute, for example:

* * * * * php /path/to/phpvms/artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1

Note: If your host has multiple PHP versions, make sure to use the path to the PHP 7.x version in the cronjob.
