Has anyone successfully gotten cron jobs to work with GoDaddy shared hosting and Drupal 7.x?
This sort of thing is EASY if you have access to use wget or cURL but GoDaddy for some reason blocks access to their own shared servers through tools as wget and cURL. Why I don't know.
We are stuck with having to use
but as described here: http://drupal.org/node/251481
that is bad since Drupal doesn't go through its bootstrap process and certain vars are not initalized. I also get the classic:
Status: 404 Content-type: text/html No input file specified.
when I use this method. There is also the fact that D7.x requires a cron_key parameter passed along _cron.php?cron_key=XXXXXXXXXXXXX
Anyone have a solution...besides get the hell off GoDaddy?
