I just moved to a hosting that "supports" both SSH and cron job. However, the following are the limitations:

1. I can not use crontab -u in SSH
2. The official cron job runs at my root which is 3 levels up from ADMIN directory.

Anyway out? Charter, could this be another enhancement to the new version of PHPDIG script?

Because my cron job has to run in my root. I try the following:

1. I make another copy of spider.php and place it in my root.
2. I try "php spider.php cronlist >> spider.log"

I got "path not found" types of errors in spider.log

3. I change $relative_script_path from ".." to "public_html/phpdid" (line 31, that is my path).

I got nothing (0 byte) in spider.log file. Anything I did wrong? Did anyone try to run shell mode spider in directories other than admin? Please help!!!

Finally, I get some output in spider.log:

It seems some other places need to be change. Could anyone help? Thanks.

Try using absolute paths (e.g. /usr/bin/php -f /path/to/spider.php)

Don't forget the -f part
