I'm running drupal 7 on a shared host with cpanel and apache. I don't want to use regular cron because i want to run some tasks more regularly than others such as the search index. So i added Elysia Cron module. It doesn't run at the regular intervals I intend though. I'm hoping you all can give me some guidance. Here's how I set it up:
I added a cron job in my cpanel like so:
http://mysite/sites/all/modules/elysia_cron/cron.php?cron_key=key and set the frequency to *****.
Then in Drupal I went to admin > configure > elysia cron and did the following:
Set search to run every 15 minutes and everything else either every hour or every day.
I also set the installation settings so that 'never/use external crontab' is selected for 'run cron on visitor's requests, every'.
But when I save these settings...cron doesn't run every 15 minutes for the search index as planned.
Any idea what else I might need to change?
