Hi @michael Can you please help me on how to enable CronJob in my local machine for DevKinsta?
If i run ‘crontab -e’ its showing command not found.
root@fffe3743e04a:/www/kinsta/public# crontab -e
bash: crontab: command not found
When i see it in my wordpress backend, i got the below.
Hi @Saravana_Kumar . I hope you don’t mind. I’ve moved your post into a new thread to avoid confusion with the other one.
I’m afraid crontab/cron jobs are not enabled by default on our Docker environment. Typically this wouldn’t be something you want enabled for the local environment. With a bit of tweaking, it’s certainly possible to do.
As for the cron events failing locally, would you happen to have crons disabled via wp-config.php? It’s also possible code contained within the site (plugin or theme) is preventing crons from functioning properly.
You can use WP-CLI for this from devkinsta_fpm container.
Login to container shell using
#docker exec -it devkinsta_fpm bash
After this navigate to your project directory
#wp cron event run --due-now --allow-root
You will have to repeat this or use the watch command to run it every x seconds if you want that. But for development purposes running it manually it is not a big issue I think.
