I bought this, it looks good. Can you tell me what to enter under cron tab settings for a once a week nightly backup and what would settings be for a daily nightly backup? It is not clear to me what to put here.
Yes I did see the link, I still don’t get it and how he has the demo set up was no help. I’m just looking for a weekly midnight backup setting and a nightly clear cache setting. I just don’t get the timers, once I see a few examples using his add on settings I’m sure I will.
We are glad to inform you that the Automatic administrator tasks add-on has been modified and extended. We have added the ability to delete files automatically after uploading and to send e-mail notifications about the execution of all type tasks.
I guess the tasks are being executed one by one under control of this addon. What happens if one task takes long enough to execute so the scheduled time for the next task has passed sufficiently?
In this case, the execution of the second task will start on time.
For example, you have the database backup task for 11:01 p.m. and it takes 3 minutes. And you have the custom script execution task for 11:02 p.m. The execution of your script will start at 11:02 p.m. while database backup.
I purchased and installed this and now can forget the backup and other admin routines. Of course I would periodically check that it is working correctly but It is a BIG timesaver for the money. Easy installation, set the tasks and forget it.
