Code: Select all

8) Add cron.pl script to your crontab to run it every hour.
   Sample: 0   *   *   *   *   cd /var/www/cgi-bin;./cron.pl >/dev/null 2>&1

1) Expiring temp symlinks in /files/folder - check that there're no folders older than Temp Expire time

2) Expiring files

If u have cPanel, there's special section for this. If u have SSH root then use command

Code: Select all

crontab -e

then add this line there

Code: Select all

0   *   *   *   *   cd /your-path-to-cgi-bin;./cron.pl >/dev/null 2>&1


make sure cron.pl is 755.

Alternatively you can run cron.pl from browser using url like http://yoursite.com/cgi-bin/cron.pl , but you will get 500 error - that's correct cause it's not for browsers originally.
