Drupal cron setup on blacknight.ie unix plan

For setting up a Drupal maintenance cron job on the blacknight.ie unix hosting plan, I have found that the following command works well:


/usr/bin/wget -O – -q -t 1 http://www.yourdomain.com/cron.php

    But where abouts do you set up the cron job in the control panel?

    By the way, are you coming to the DrupalCamp in Galway? It would be great to meet up.

    Hi Heather,

    With Blacknight unix hosting on their newer control panel, just navigate to the Web Space/Cron Management page and hit the ‘Add new Job’ button!

    Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it over to Galway for the DrupalCamp, but it sounds like a great idea and I hope everybody has a blast!
